Jonah Parzen-Johnson and Icasiano/Goldston


Chapel Performance Space Wallingford
Thu., June 29, 8 p.m. 2017 All Ages


Chicago-bred, Brooklyn-based saxophonist Jonah Parzen-Johnson deploys circular breathing techniques and an analog synthesizer (which he controls with his feet) to create eerily atmospheric compositions that hover in the intriguing zone among Jon Hassell’s Fourth World Music, Graham Haynes’s 1990s output, and Terry Riley’s Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band All Night Flight, Vol. 1. Parzen-Johnson’s new album on Clean Feed, I Try to Remember Where I Come From, conjures a nocturnal, sacred glow not unlike those ambient passages found on Spiritualized’s first three albums. Despite all that name-dropping, I don’t mean to imply Parzen-Johnson’s work is derivative; it’s actually vital stuff that just happens to trigger thoughts of those important artists. DAVE SEGAL
