TONIGHT! Orlando! AMF and the CM5 are excited to present multi-instrumentalist, composer and songwriter Ashley Paul tonight at The Gallery at Avalon Island at 7:00 pm. Check out more information here. 

Ashley Paul is one to watch. Her aggressive post-Ayler alto sax is loose, yet fierce. I hesitate to call anything she does “free jazz,” but maybe she taps into a purer form of free jazz than anyone else, especially with frequent partner Eli Keszler. That said, Its the Heat is quieter and more restrained than any of Paul’s recordings up until now. She layers clean, skree’d guitar and minimal percussion throughout, and even sings, which is a first. The result calls to mind Suzanne Langille’s ghostly moans on avant-blues guitarist Loren Connors’ early-’90s recordings, minus the blues.

Even in still moments, particles incite microscopic riots. Brooklyn-via-Boston composer and multi-instrumentalist Ashley Paul is used to making a huge racket, most regularly with her husband Eli Keszler. On her Line the Clouds, there’s tension in patience as she navigates a singer-songwriter’s reactions.

With cautiously plucked electric guitar, saxophone squeaks and bowed percussion, Line the Clouds is not a conventional singer-songwriter album. The techniques and sonics come from free improvisation, but Paul plays with them as though they were handed down from folk singers past. The sparse, abstract instrumentation is just as expressive and hushed and unsure as her voice, perhaps most starkly heard on “Watch Them Pass.”
