1. Aaron Leaney & Chris Dadge - Continuity {Bugincision Records 2011}

Aaron Leaney & Chris Dadge - Continuity {Bugincision Records 2011}

Aaron Leaney - tenor saxophone, recorder, piano, percussion, Chris Dadge - drumset, zither, trumpet, vibrator, percussion, violin. Recorded 2010 (Bugincision Records bim-42) "When Aaron Leaney, a jazz saxophonist, pairs up with another highly skilled musician, drummer Chris Dadge for a wild session, the result is an astounding free-improvisation piece. The duo aren’t afraid to explore the interplay of syncopated rhythms and discordantly sad melodies. What’s striking is the back and forth between Leaney and Dadge. Each feed off the other but also throw twists and turns, making the whole thing terribly unpredictable. Stuck in between some of the more frantic instrumentation can be found incredibly minimal solos from either Leaney or Dadge. These sojourns into calmer territory are quickly diverted as wild raucous and the creation of free music takes over. In the piece, both instrumentalists utilize a variety of sound makers but Dadge more so delves into tools not typically to the drummer’s repertoire - including violin, trumpet, zither, vibrators, rubbings and even voice. One really well used effect on this recording is panning to create a more surround sound experience. Dadge, who is also credited as the recording engineer, captures the movement of the duo around the microphones. This all adds well to the involved and interesting playing that is put out by Leaney and Dadge." Kat Dornian Feedback Zine #9

4. Until The End {Multiphonic Records 2008}

Until The End {Multiphonic Records 2008}

Aaron Leaney is a young Canadian saxophonist, joined on this trio outing by Thom Golub on bass and Chris Dadge on drums and electronics, and they are more than worth listening to. The music moves hesitatingly between composition with defined melodies and structure on the one hand and full freedom on the other. The music is free in nature, but in a sensitive, lyrical manner. The first track is a nice example of this, with a kind of joyful melody and great exploration of the theme. The second track, "Until The End", is my favorite, a slow and dark piece, with a repetitive bass line, over which Leaney plays sensitive and beautiful sax phrases, with bird-like electronic sounds from Dadge, giving the whole an extra dimension, and the sax slowly expands on the tune while keeping the dark focus, with the arco bass playing offering a great variation in the long piece. Despite its title "Still Water", the third track is more uptempo, with enthusiastic, energetic and angular drumming by Dadge, offering Leaney the chance to unleash more power than on the other tracks, with the drummer himself playing up a storm, until the bass brings peace and calm, temporarily that is, because the tension increases again. The last track starts with unison arco bass and sax, for a repetive intro, which breaks open into a singing then halting melody, with gradual building up the tension and the energy again, without really breaking loose. These are three musicians with great skills and promise. They are clearly evolving towards creating their own voice and should be better known. Technically and musically there is no reason why they shouldn't be.

Price Of Twice {Paragate Trio}

Price of Twice (Recorded live November 2014) PARAGATÉ is the collaboration between Montreal based saxophonist Aaron Leaney (Bord Á Bord), drummer Michel Lambert (Paul Bley) and acoustic bassist Aaron Lumley (Hamid Drake).

Leaney describes, "improvisation is used as the vehicle [for the group] to reflect the conditions we are seeing throughout the world today. It's absolutely necessary for people to continue towards a new path or as we're realizing now in Canada, it can even lead to a new home and a path of possibility for people in need."
