About Other Dimensions In Music

Other Dimensions in Music first recorded in 1990 for the Swedish Silkheart label. The group played a wholly improvised music in a Cecil Taylor-derived vein; appropriate, since the band's rhythm section included Taylor-vets bassist William Parker and drummer Rashid Bakr. The band is especially notable as a vehicle for the little-recorded saxophonist Daniel Carter, a passionate and lyrical improviser who assiduously avoids taking leader credits on any of his musical ventures (it's been reported that the Silkheart record was originally conceived as his project). Issues of leadership are ultimately irrelevant in this band, however; it's a communal enterprise all the way. Carter and trumpeter Roy Campbell improvise with fire and grace within the tempestuous rhythmic framework provided by Bakr and Parker. The band played together sporadically throughout the '90s at New York's Knitting Factory and other venues. In 1998, they recorded Now! for the Aum Fidelity label, followed by Time Is of the Essence Is Beyond Time in 2000. ~ Chris Kelsey
