When life gives you six arms, make a lot of noise. That could be the mantra of Philly avant-jazz trio Many Arms, considering their affinity for experimental jaunts into noisy worlds most of us haven’t yet discovered. On their third and latest LP released by Tzadik, Many Arms (guitarist Nick Millevoi, bassist John Deblase and drummer Ricardo Lagomasino) reach a level of clarity that seems counter-intuitive when the sheer wildness of their free jazz compositions is taken into account, but it works (Spin thinks so too). Many Arms will be joined by saxophonist Colin Fisher at The Rotunda this Friday, January 4th. Tickets and information can be found here. Below, watch the trio perform “Beyond Territories.” You can also grab a name-your-own-price download of their Live at First Unitarian Church over on Many Arms’ Bandcamp.
