Autumn Uprising cover

    A two-CD compilation of music recorded during the Autumn Uprising festival of Boston new improvised music, held in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, on October 17–19, 1997. Featured are selections from eleven of the fourteen groups which participated, including the Hans Poppel Trio, the Charlie Kohlhase Quartet, Aardvark Jazz Orchestra, Fully Celebrated Orchestra, and others.

    Debris’ contribution is a composition by Steve Norton entitled “Fear Of Laurence.”

    Tautology 001/002

“Debris is in especially sharp form on ‘Fear of Laurence,’ a maze-like composition that elicits some riveting saxophone solos from Steven Norton and Jeff Hudgins.”

“... A document like this can’t include everyone working in Boston, but it does give listeners a good indication of the wide range of expression and styles that exist under the ‘improvised-music’ banner. And it makes clear that Boston’s new-music scene is very much, in the words of Roland’s poem, ‘alive and struggling.’”

—Ed Hazell, the Boston Phoenix
