Album Notes
August 2012 REVIEW OF “FORCES OF THE WILD”(http://www.downtownmusicgallery.com/Main/news/Newsletter-2012-08-10.html) by Bruce Lee Gallanter of Downtown Music Gallery, New York, NY.

ANDY BIANCO/BOB MOSES - Forces of the Wild (Bianco Music; USA) Featuring Andy Bianco on unprepared & prepared electric guitar and Bob Moses on drums & percussion. Last Sunday (8/5/12) a guitarist named Andy Bianco played here at DMG in a trio/quartet with Giacomo Merega & Noah Kaplan. I was impressed by his playing, especially the odd string manipulations he employed. Mr. Bianco left us with a fine duo CD with the legendary drummer Bob Rakalam Moses, who Andy met when he was studying at Berklee in Boston. Bob Moses is one of the finest and most sought after drummers alive, his career stretching back to the mid-sixties and playing with many other important figures like Gary Burton, Larry Coryell, Pat Metheny and many others. Rakalam is also the drummer of choice for the legendary guitarist Tisziji Munoz.
    Mr. Bianco seems to be altering, bending and manipulating his strings here as well, creating noisy yet effective sounds which work well with Mr. Moses' crafty dialogue. Moses often concentrates on just his snare, bass drums and cymbals, creating simple lines and then building rhythmic phrases on top, allowing the music to breathe and develop slowly. Mr. Bianco also takes his time, bending certain notes and selectively adding an occasional amount of feedback to pulse through. He launches into some intense free/fusion flurries while Moses holds things back down to the earth with knitting needles on the drums or scissors perhaps. Some of the noisier moments sound both familiar and alien at the same time. There are moments when the duo allow the spaciousness to become filled with suspense which really works well and balances the noisier perfectly. After listening to jazz and rock guitarists improvise for so many years, you recognize noisy of strange sounds that are part of a new vocabulary of free electric guitar. Bob Moses' gift is to provide an ongoing focal point/flow that keeps the guitar rooted to a spirited conversation between trustworthy collaborators. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery

August 2013 Review of "Forces of the Wild" by Stanley Zappa of The New York City Jazz Record (http://nycjazzrecord.com/):

Stripping the instrumentation down to a duo,
Forces of the Wild dispenses with fuming incense
stenchers and technicolor wonderment in favor of a
palette rich in grays and black; there is less asking,
more telling. Moses’ ever nimble drumming is welcome
alongside Andy Bianco’s overdriven nihilistic guitar.
Though not as nimble as John McLaughlin (though he
comes close on “Mechanization”), one wishes
McLaughlin would hire Bianco as his tonal guru, as the
latter’s sound is closer to the Mahavishnu Orchestra
than anything McLaughlin is doing these days. Unless
something spectacular happens in the next few months,
count Forces of the Wild as 2013’s top contribution to the
literature of the guitar/drum duo.

Please note: The above review was published in the August 2013 issue of The New York City Jazz Record. The rating of 4 stars was given by me Andy Bianco, because CD Baby would not allow me to submit the review unless I rated it. The rating of 4 stars was not from Stanley Zappa.
