Bill Noertker and his psychedelic avant-chamber jazz ensemble, Noertker’s Moxie, are back with a three-part suite, Tricycle.


In this second installment, Elysium, Noertker takes us to Sidmouth, a sleepy seaside town on England’s Jurassic Coast where he recently spent an idyllic week with a friend, his friend’s family, and their two contrabasses. From the capricious rhythmic ping-pong of Buddhist Isometrics to the hypnagogic chant of Talkin’ to Huddie Ledbetter to the brittle pulsations of Ventricles, Noertker and his stalwart companions engage us with their playful, emotive, and intimate musical conversations.

 

In 2001, Bill Noertker formed Noertker’s Moxie as a vehicle for his thematic compositions. Since then he has composed over 200 pieces of music and has released thirteen CDs on the Edgetone Records label, including the soundtrack for Curious Worlds: the Art and Imagination of David Beck and the extended suites Sketches of Catalonia; The Blue Rider; and The Druidh.
