Analog Birds features J. Ward (Asa Milbankx), Timothy McNicholas and Bronson Stevic (Ali A.B.), along with friends (who have violins, cellos, banjos and trombones). The unsigned band’s three releases include 2004′s Out Of Sight and Don’t Let It Slow You Down, and this amazingly melodic issue from 2007, Musique Concrete.
Roland Kirk. Jazz multi-instrumentalist. Known for his exceptional circular breathing, use of musique concrete, and playing multiple instruments simultaneously. Here he is playing tenor saxophone and two obscure saxophones: the stritch (a straight alto sax lacking the instrument's characteristic upturned bell) and a manzello (a modified saxello soprano sax, with a larger, upturned bell).
