about

Discovered from old tapes, this recording offers a look at the early experimental and highly imaginative period from the late '80s and early '90s. It begins innocently enough with Obcession, a smoothly swinging tune. Playing In The Park lets the imagination run while Wiggly Jimmy gets you moving. Commie Cafe Suite offers a variety of sonic personalities while The Rocks Are Singing will transport you to some primoral landscape in the land of Gondwana. Street Scene brings you to some other place yet explored. F-Minor Thing is self described while After This Message is excerpts from a futuristic animation. In all, 8 tracks unlike each other, and probably anything else you may have heard, but all original Gondwana.

about

Gondwana Jazz Band Minneapolis, Minnesota

Gondwana is a five-piece band of musicians who have been playing jazz together for over thirty years – long enough to take a tune to the edge without losing their footing.

Take a listen. Just when you think you know where they’re going, they take you somewhere else - deconstructing and reconstructing the continents of rhythm and sound.

Surprise, variety and originality are Gondwana’s trademarks.
