Press the Button creates composition by sampling the Rick Jensen Trio
The crew at Press the Button have created a new piece, "A Rick Jensen Reverie" entirely from samples of the Rick Jensen Trio. It's an impressive transformation, a original piece that is quite reminiscent of the original performance but also completely different. Get it from the Sound page on the Press the Button website.

The second Rick Jensen album on Postmoderncore is released
The second Rick Jensen Trio album, "Snowdrift" has been released. It was recorded live at Bodega, Wellington NZ on 29th April 2003, with the current regular trio line-up of Rick playing clarinet and alto sax, Sam playing bass, and Smiley playing drums.
The mp3s will now be 128kbps ABR, replacing the 192kbps CBR mp3s
Because of the amount of music we want to share on the website, we can no longer use the high quality 192kbps constant bit rate encoded mp3s. 128kpbs average bit rate appears to be the best space/quality trade off, and still high quality. But if you want the higher quality mp3s, download them now.
The first Rick Jensen album on Postmoderncore is released
Rick Jensen is a free jazz saxophonist that Sam and Smiley have been playing bass and drums for in the Rick Jensen Trio. We take pleasure in presenting "age of illumination", recorded live at the Photospace, Wellington NZ in July 2003, with Rick playing clarinet and alto sax, Sam playing double bass, and Richard Whyte playing cello. We hope to see a lot of his work on the postmoderncore label in future.
