With his provocative new release 24 Tales, Alex Machacek has sought an inventive new context for both his incredibly fluid, precise guitar work and his expanding compositional vision. Drummer Marco Minnemann's 51 minute solo - a kaleidoscopic rush of rhythmic, textural, and even melodic devices, all improvised without a click track - became the backdrop for 24 Tales. 24 Tales finds Machacek breaking Minneman's solo into 24 discrete (but connected) sections. He then composed music for each section, taking extra care to make sure the transitions were smooth and musical.
