I Am The Escaped One „…it’s the top of my list for 2019.“ # One Man’s Jazz
„I Am The Escaped One“ (2019) is the most recent album by bassist Carlos Bica. The album is uncategorisable, the saxophon’s Daniel Erdmann’s playing fits whatever the mood calls for, but it’s the work of turntable artist DJ Illvibe that turns this album on its head. DJ Illvibe is certainly the most inventive practitioner of his art that I’ve heard and I guess you might expect serious musical chops from the son of renowned avantgarde pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach. Vincent von Schlippenbach throws in snippets of vocals, Vinyls, strange sounds, atmospheric bits that bounce off and mash with Erdmann’s hard-nosed Saxophone and Bica who constantly demonstrates just about every imaginable thing that a bassist can do with the accoustic bass. The only limits to this recording are probably one’s imagination.
I highly recommend I Am The Escaped One and it’s the top of my list for 2019.“
