James Ilgenfritz (double bass)


James Ilgenfritz (double bass)


Bassist James Ilgenfritz offers his second solo CD, again exploring the fertile territory between composition and improvisation.

Following his debut solo recording Compositions (Braxton) 2011 (dedicated entirely to the music of composer Anthony Braxton), this record features works by four composers who have each contributed to the distinctive musical community in New York over the last few decades. Each composer worked closely with James Ilgenfritz to write music that was a hybrid of their own creative vision and James's unusual approach to the bass.

From hypnotic drone works involving just intonation and use of multiple bows, to astounding feats of technical virtuosity, this collection of works brings hyper-complexity, improvisation, and lyrical beauty together into a deeply personal tour-de-force of musical invention.
