MUSIC REVIEWS: Pop country/roots jazz and classical releases
Modesto Bee – Oct 25, 2007
Beyond the rocky hillbilly-hop and Southern-fried hiccup of previous Kid collections this release takes on the American outback – its women politics women gods wars and. women – with a white-trash swagger his heroes Bob Seger Warren Zevon and Lynyrd Skynyrd could only dream of.

Gwirtzman is teaching this fall at his Ann Arbor alma mater and going back to New York to dance with his company on weekends. So why not fly a few dancers in and put on a show for Michiganians? Therefore "Encore" – first created this year and performed at the home of New York cutting-edge dance the Joyce Soho – will have an encore; one of several this year. "The heart of it is jazz music. Classical jazz – Louis Armstrong Duke Ellington Dorsey brothers" says Gwirtzman after teaching a dance class on a recent fall day. He is animated and vigorous in talking about his work eyes darting and widening energy spilling out of arms and hands. "The concept of the work is dancers preparing for a performance; it is a window into the studio" – not unlike the one that had unfurled upstairs a few moments before.

There were always debs flitting about Simon Ward’s kids Susannah York’s kids. There was no money about but the great thing was Atallah just let us get on with it. The Wire spent the ’80s enjoying London’s decade-long flirtation with jazz but in the ’90s it gradually became home to pieces on underground music of all varieties celebrating anyone who vented ideas that sat outside the mainstream. The boom in electronic music from drum and bass to ambient fitted perfectly into The Wire’s world and nowadays as editor Chris Bohn (53 clad in black) says “It’s easier to define us by what we don’t cover than what we do.
