Artist: FLAHERTY, PAUL & CHRIS CORSANO
Title: The Beloved Music
Format: CD
Label: Family Vineyard
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"The most thoroughly realized blueprint for a post-hardcore take on improvised jazz to date from the duo of legendarily long-serving New England saxophonist Paul Flaherty and young firebrand drummer Chris Corsano. Forsaking the call and response modes of countless improvising ensembles, the duo deal more in a simultaneity of sound, an elemental non-stop gush of ideas, rhythms and epiglottal forms that at points feels like a small-group response to the orchestral conceptions of the Peter Brotzmann and John Coltrane big-bands as much as epochal duo deals like the Rashied Ali/Frank Lowe and Muhammad Ali/Frank Wright sides."  - Family Vineyard.

Title: Low Cost Space Flights
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"It has been eight long years since weve had a new duo album by Paul Flaherty and Chris Corsano. The two have played together in other configurations, but we all know there has always been something special and telepathic about their duo collaborations. From the moment they began playing together late in the last century, Paul and Chris communicated in weird, deep ways. And so it is here. Low Cost Space Flights was recorded in June 2013, at Eric Gagnes Thing in the Spring Festival in Peterborough, New Hampshire. And the duo wails through the three tracks. The room in which the performance happened has a nice natural echo, giving a sprongy edge to Flahertys lateral sax runs, while Corsanos feverish percussion dives straight through every hoopsnake Paul rolls in his direction. No surprise. Chris is among the nimblest, most authoritatively athletic drummers to have graced the circles of fire music hell. And Flaherty remains, to my mind, a continuously under-rated player, largely because hes so rooted to his physical place in the universe that is New England. His style slips seamlessly from freak register space-squeedling to bar-walk honkery to a sort of chess players motion-logic. Most of this set veers towards Pauls harder-blowing end of the spectrum and we say Halle-fuckin-lujah! Leave the ballads to the bow ties, for now. Low Cost Space Flights reunites two great goddamn forces of the New England improv scene, and displays their playing at its hermetic, alloyed best. Beautiful Simon Bosse cover art. Great songs titles -- The Dog Paintings of George W. Bush, etc. Whats not to love? Besides lobsters, of course." --Byron Coley; Includes digital download code. Edition of 300.

"Saxophonist Paul Flaherty and drummer Chris Corsano are New  England-based musicians dedicated to the promise and purpose of free improvisation. Paul has released over 20 recordings since the late 70s, while Chris first appeared on record in 1997. For the past 5 years, the two have operated together in duo format as well as in collaborations with some of the finest freedom thinkers around such as Nmperigns Greg Kelly, Thurston Moore and Jim ORourke of Sonic Youth, Tony Conrad, Matt Heyner of Test and the No Neck Blues Band, Daniel Carter, Christina Carter and Heather Murray of Charalambides/Scorces, Wally Shoup, and Steve Swell. Together, Flaherty & Corsano seek to champion the cause of total free improvisation, an often misunderstood, underestimated, and sometimes even hated artform." - Records.
