John Cratchley Elliott Sharp: String Quartets from Tzadik, Blues Band Terraplane with Eric Mingus, Solo composition with Octal on Clean Feed and now Intakt give us an in-depth overview of one of his earliest bands Carbon...he is,quite simply,a ubiquitous musical presence.
These are great recordings with a huge variety of top-rate contributing musicians. He seems to be the musician who gets left out of discussions about the higher echelons of the New York downtown scene...unjustly,I think...he deserves to be right up there.

about

Intakt CD 188 (3 CDs)

The Age of Carbon covers the period from the first full Elliott Sharp Carbon LP in 1984 through the Tocsin CD of 1991. This 3-disc collection gives a sonic overview of the band in its different iterations in those hot, dense, and fast years in New York downtown scene.

The composer and multi-instrumentalist Elliott Sharp is one of the most striking personalities of the New York music scene. Along with John Zorn, Arto Lindsay, Bill Frisell and Marc Ribot, Sharp has been at the heart of the post 80s innovations which took improvised, composed and electronic music beyond their boundaries, to merge them with jazz, blues and rock.
