Naked Dance! Something Nearby
Stephen Rush, Andrew Bishop, Jeremy Edwards with Tim Flood, Davy Lazar
Naked Dance is the child of Stephen Rush which was founded with the idea of playing without a bass. This album is Naked Dance’s third attempt and includes a bass player. All compositions are by Stephen Rush and range from New Orleans street music to open graphic scores (Time Cycles). The album includes multiple “realisations” or takes of Stephen’s piece “Time Cycles” which is a graphic score study with ovals and circles laid over staves — open to interpretations by musicians. Jeremy Edwards — drums, Andrew Bishop — clarinet and base clarinet, Tim Flood — bass, synthesiser, Davy Lazar — trumpet. Stephen Rush plays piano, rhodes, micromoog, trombone and euphonium.
