Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2022-05-30 
Avante experimental post jazz-rock-electronics (?) coming to us from Andy Haas. Haas’ continues his explorations with treated soprano sax with high end “downtown improv jazz” drum stylings and what sounds to me like modular synths via his collaborators Adams and Dunn. Envision Miles Davis bitches brew era had Davis gone entirely off the deep end with LSD and access to the recording/mixing technology we have today. Haas’ goes back to the 80’s, playing in Martha and the Muffins, and is now living in NYC having collaborated with a who’s who including John Zorn, Fred Frith, Ikue Mori, Thurston Moore, Marc Ribot. Great stuff.

1) (4:04) spacey with floating beat, ride cymbal’ish feel. 2) (9:53) see above Miles Davis reference: super cool experimental noise 3) (1:42) sax gets crazed in with the swirling electronics 4) (5:57) evolves out of previous with droning organ, improv drums 5) (8:23) bass synth line provides foundation for sax stylings, devolves into excellent electronics/treated sax balm 6)** (12:16) arises nicely out of previous with a more ambient dark tone, grows intense toward end. Bill C. 5/22
