What's Good For the Goose Is Good
Vinyl LP pressing. 2019 release. NYC's legendary avant-garde composer and performer Bradford Reed presents What's Good For the Goose Is Good, his first instrumental album in over 13 years. What's Good for the Goose Is Good is driven by the pencilina, an electric ten stringed collision of the hammer dulcimer, slide guitar, zither, and fretless bass. Invented by Bradford in the late '80s, the pencilina was a staple of his NYC street performances throughout the '90s. Now brought together with a modular synthesizer, Bradford's latest work features lush, spontaneous compositions written collectively with an ensemble of acclaimed experimental and free jazz musicians, with each piece emblematic of the tightly bonded friendship shared between it's performers.
