Steve Baczkowski - Tone Arm.pdf

Buffalo Steve (his free jazz nickname) is most frequently noted for his wild baritone sax playing. He really knows how to handle that monster, but he takes a very different tack here. Using tone arm, screwed up records and loops, Steve makes a delirious racket, somewhat in the style of Dennis Duck Goes Disco, but even more manic and cartoony. Oh those golden birdies. - Byron Coley, Size Matters, The Wire 326Tone Arm, Steve Baczkowski's first solo release, takes a more collaged approach. Distorted field recordings of bird chatter, remote flutes, and shuffling feet are sandwiched between tone arm manipulation of Baczkowski's own home-modified vinyl records, resulting in an unpredictable arrhythmia of sounds, looped, sped up, slowed down, or reversed. The Buffalo-based saxophonist has collaborated with percussionist Ravi Padmanabha as well as a number of fine American contemporary free jazz practitioners, including Paul Flaherty, Chris Corsano, and Bill Nace. The vibrant drones of his baritone are impressive – its fleshy timbre sounds uncannily like a didgeridoo – but his delicate, eerie collages, somewhere between Marclay and Moondog, are irresistible.–Natasha Pickowicz, Paris Transatlantic Magazine, Spring 2011
