BRYAN DAY BEN SALOMON TANIA CHEN
"This is the second album by the Bad Jazz trio, consisting of Tania Chen, Bryan Day and Ben Salomon. The title may be taken as a caveat that none of the usual jazz instruments are involved. All members tend to concentrate their playing on invented instruments, objects, and electronic gear"

Bad Jazz - "Tincture" cassette (62 min)
"After 4 years of dormancy my small record label, Friends & Relatives, is back in action! On offer from the San Francisco based trio Bad Jazz comes a 62 minute long excursion into the depths of clang/scratch/beep. Improvisational electro-acoustic renderings of texture and space heat the air and spread the thin veil from wall to wall. Bryan Day (invented instruments), Tania Chen (electronics, piano, violin) and Ben Salomon (invented instruments, feedback, percussion, guitar) provide 8 tracks of difficult deep listening that sonically destroy and re-build without leaving evidence of a blueprint in their wake. Cover art by Holly Wilson. " Justin Clifford-Rhody, February 2016
