Jim Ryan, Jordan Glenn
Mindless Thing
CD $9

Mindless Thing is a collaboration between drummer/composer Jordan Glenn and saxophonist/band leader/poet/artist/sage Jim Ryan. The music, composed and conducted by Glenn, takes malleable material and filters it through a unique ensemble of strings and percussion. The result is used to create a backdrop for Ryan's surreal and haunting poetry.

"Oakland-based percussionist and composer Jordan Glenn is a modern-day Mingus, known as much for his mastery of his chosen instrument as for his unique and compelling ensemble work... Here, he collaborates with Jim Ryan, a Bay Area poet who used to pal around with Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs." - Phil Phactor KFJC FM89.7
