NAIL : recorded live at the Casa del Popolo in Montreal.
September 19 2019

Recent years have been a purple patch of creativity for Montreal clarinetist, Lori Freedman, whose staggering talents as a soloist-interpreter of contemporary music’s most challenging material reached new heights on two solo recordings, Excess and Solor. She conceived this project with her duo partner in Mercury, Montreal bassist Nicolas Caloia, and Amsterdam’s Ab Baars (clarinet & shakuhachi) and Ig Henneman (viola) with whom Lori has worked in Ig’s stellar Sextet. NAIL combines these four vital players in a trans-Atlantic chamber improvisation quartet, all playing wooden instruments.
