Erstwhile Records Announces New Keith Rowe Album


Erstwhile Records has announced a new album on its ErstClass imprint. The album finds Keith Rowe performing a composition by Frank Abbinanti entitled “City Music.” Rowe performed a piece by the same composer and with the same title on his 1990 album A Dimension Of Perfectly Ordinary Reality. This composition is different, however, despite sharing the same name. Rowe performed the piece in Chicago earlier this decade, a video of which you can see below. Jon Abbey of Erstwhile has stated that the recording that will appear on this new album will be “very different” from what was heard in Chicago. No release date is confirmed as of yet.

Keith Rowe last released an album on Erstwhile in 2017, a collaboration with Michael Pisaro entitled 13 Thirteen. Earlier this year, he released a collaborative album with John Tilbury and Kjell Bjørgeengen on Sofa entitled Sissel.
