Kip Hanrahan - At Home in Anger


Kip Hanrahan s first new recording in many years! The renowned composer, bandleader, visionary producer, and creative instigator has long been known for intensely passionate music that is both tender and hard-driving, with a deep poetic edge. Fans of forward-thinking, outernational music will no doubt be thrilled to hear that Hanrahan is back! Kip Hanrahan has experienced a lot. He was an assistant with Nouvelle Vague director Jean-Luc Godard, the video artist Nam June Paik and the innovative composer Carla Bley, made from the early eighties wonderful records like "Coup de Tete", "Desire Develops An Edge" and "Exotica "for which he formed fantastic, exciting all-star bands with Jack Bruce, Milton Cardona, Charles Neville, Henry Threadgill, David Murray, Arto Lindsay, Billy Bang, Taj Mahal, Astor Piazzolla and even Sting. Today Kip Hanrahan moves between Rio de Janeiro and Reston, Virginia, swinging cross boundaries acts as a catalyst again, less as a jazz musician in the usual sense. The seventeen pieces on “Anger…” are subtle, rhythmically powerful and more focused and balanced than the previous CD. On his thirteenth album percussionist and producer, poet and visionary Kip Hanrahan compensates his vivid anger about oppression and exclusion: "At Home In Anger" - a fascination with excitement, relaxation, warmth and magic. - from Jazzrecords.com

The music of Hanrahan, and of the American Clavé label which he runs, is rich beyond compare. - by Phil Johnson, Independent (London)
