Club d’Elf Live at Club Helsinki (MP3 Album)


(2017) An epic double album that showcases the band’s genre-leaping improvisational acumen, with the music visiting touchstones as disparate as Studio One, John Cage, 70’s era Miles Davis, Gnawa and drum’n’bass. Recorded live November 16, 2012 at Club Helsinki, Hudson, NY. Critics gushed:

Live At Club Helsinki is one of those rare recordings that points in a viable direction for the future of creative music and its near two-hour running time goes by in a flash… an accessible blend of styles that is unmatched by any current offerings. Highly recommended.” – Karl Ackermann, AllAboutJazz
