CLEERS: I’ve Lived So Long Tonight
New Clear Vinyl + digital download :: 12 songs ::
hand assembled photo-print & recycled jacket
From the mutant mind of Taylor Rouss comes a deep dive into supernatural free jazz.
Cleers is an improv unit led by Rouss on saxophones and game calls with various
collaborators on an array of instruments. This collection offers an eclectic variety of
sounds and group interplay, while achieving a consistent mood through Taylor's sense
of humor and penchant for musical mischief. Character voices chime in out of nowhere
and game call squeals suggest a cartoonish alien language. The album starts off with a
musical dedication to Betty and Barney Hill, the first American couple to report being
abducted by aliens in September of 1961. Things get stranger from there, but eventually
wind up in the midst of performance recordings that capture the organic chemistry of a
unique group, at a certain time and place on planet Earth.
