Create (!): A Prospect of Freedom
During exploratory sessions for First Light’s Freeze, Castanet Raymond Raposa collaborated with 50-member free form jazz/noise/folk ensemble Create (!). The result is Create (!)\’s startling release A Prospect of Freedom. A collection of slow-burn improvisations, A Prospect of Freedom is a full length sextet collaboration between Raposa, Lynn Johnston (Red Krayola, Eugene Chadbourne) and Kris Tiner (Wadada Leo Smith) in addition to the core trio of longstanding Create (!) members: Justice Constantine, Orlando Greenhill and Chris Schlarb.
