Warning: do not miss this concert, even if SEAN NOONAN’s name doesn’t ring a bell, because his PAVEES DANCE band is one star-studded line-up!
NOONAN, a drummer, presents himself as a “rhythmic storyteller”. He has released over twenty albums, from the punk-jazz trio The Hub to an opera about Zappa and Varèse called “Zappanation”. He formed PAVEES DANCE in 2014.
Surrounding NOONAN are the excellent guitar slayer AVA MENDOZA (whose trio Unnatural Ways performed at FIMAV a few years ago) and the legendary bassist JAMAALADEEN TACUMA, whose provided the foundation in Ornette Coleman’s Prime Time.
And then there is the group’s vocalist and lyricist, MALCOLM MOONEY. Yes, “the” MALCOLM MOONEY, krautrockers Can’s original singer, expert in poetic improvisation, energy catalyst, and creator of unique universes!
The band has released, so far, two albums of psychedelic harmolodic jazz-rock, something wild, colourful, rich— and we mean RICH—in surprises. Lime dynamite on the fuse of which MOONEY is pulling a balancing act!
