Album Notes
Combining improvisatory free jazz, Japanese shakuhachi inspired techniques, punk rock, funk, and the classical avant-garde, John Savage's Moment in Mythica takes you on a trip down the flutist's rabbit hole where just when you think you are comfortable another sonic curveball is thrown and you are sucked into Savage's improvisatory wind tunnel yet again.

“Considering the popular, floofy Rampalian perception of the flute, it may sound antithetical to say that Savage is a badass, knock-down-drag-out force to be reckoned with, but it's true.”
--The Willamette Week

“John Savage’s flute, which emulates Japanese shakuhachi, suggests shadows and mists. . . . "
--The Washington Post

"Savage's use of extended techniques are unusually fine; they are there to serve musical ends, not flutistic vanity."
-- Robert Dick

"From the harsh sound of Ian Anderson to the beautiful tone of Herbie Mann.”
--The Oregonian
