Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Rob Mazurek (cornet), John Herndon (percussion), and Jason Adasiewicz (vibraphone) are deeply rooted in the Chicago and international avant garde, jazz and post-rock scenes. Starlicker expel sound with pervading energy and other-worldly delicacy. Mazurek leads, composes for and performs with the critically acclaimed Exploding Star Orchestra, Chicago Underground, Smarcho Paulo Underground, and Sound Is Quintet. Herndon, of the post rock collective Tortoise, creates waves of rhythm and maintains an abstract pulse uniquely his own. Adasiewicz is a Chicago mainstay and Down Beat magazine rising star, and plays in his own Sun Rooms Trio, Exploding Star Orchestra, Rolldown, and Loose Assembly.

Review

Chosen as one of the 10 Best Jazz Albums of 2011! The cornetist Rob Mazurek, the vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz and the drummer John Herndon make up this trio, steeped in ecstatic free improvisation and the dynamics of experimental rock. Their cohesion, intense and unforced, comes across with articulate bluntness. --Nate Chinen, NY Times, December 2011

Top Ten Jazz of 2011 pick! A high octane Chicago trio featuring Tortoise drummer John Herndon, Exploding Star Orchestra cornetist Rob Mazurek and vibraphone powerhouse Jason Adasiewicz (who released the excellent Spacer with his own ensemble this fall), this recording takes the vibraphone trio into a new orbit with a relentless drive toward invention. --Chris Barton, LA Times, December 2011

4.0 out of 5 stars Starlicker - Double Demon November 27, 2012
Format:Vinyl
In the northeastern parts of the country they have apple season, peach season, and more strawberry festivals than you can count ... but here in New Mexico, we've got chile season. It's State-wide, and there's nowhere you can go without the taste of sweet chiles roasting on the grill. Pull off any highway and they're being roasted fresh by the locals in big split 50 gallon drums, which is where I was when I first heard this gem featuring Rob Mazuek on cornet, John Herndon on drums, and Jason Adasiewicz on vibraphone.

With the windows of my jeep rolled down I was digging some tunes while dancing with a plate of chiles topped with cheese, trying not to spill any on my new boots, and failing miserably, when Double Demon cued up and and began to sparkle the area with some hypnotic highly charged illuminating material that just rocked me back, instantly bringing long lost visions of Sun Ra to mind. Even with these few players, and unexpected instrumentation, the sound was expansive and riveting with an undercurrent of controlled carelessness, that suggested I reread the "Chaos Theory," because connecting these elegant shimmering dots is easy on the ears, but leaves me breathless when it comes to words. There's an absolute chill to the songs, like opening the freezer door on a blistering hot day, though with Herndon's drums rolling like they do, balancing Adasiewicz's vibraphones, perhaps the chill in the air foreshadows a raincloud about to open up. Of course all this is punctuated by Rob Mazuek's cornet, though in hindsight, I can't tell you who's punctuating whom, or who's reaching for the furthest star, all I know is that I stood there transfixed with some of the most lovely polychromic rhythms I think I've ever heard.
