Two years ago, Gush celebrated 25 year as a group. One of the
concerts on the anniversary tour was organized by FRIM/SYD
at Inter Arts Center in Malmoe. Konvoj Records were there!
Very few things need to be said about Gush. With their abstract
compositions, dissonances and free improvisations, they have
already found their way into the ears of most of the daring
listeners. Gush was a central force in establishing the scene for
free improvised music and free jazz in Sweden in the late 80's.
The group and its musicians have since continued to strongly
affect, mold, deform, develop, embroil and transform both the
sound of their music as well as its audience.
Konvoj Records are very proud to present a recording of this
amazing event in May, 2013!

Great, great band, The Engines...this live recording (The Green Mill, Chicago) just hits the sweet spot continuously...
The playing, the improvising, the interplay, the energy and the verve just don't get better than this for me...all Ken Vandermark associates, all quality guaranteed composers.
Lots of exceptional stuff on this label (Dave Rempis' Aerophonic Records) too...check it all out, it's worth your time and effort. John Cratchley
