Album Review

Reviewed 2006-06-30
Abstract European improv, very artsy and cerebral stuff. Pieces are performed in small groups, with varying combinations of the 15 musicians listed on the back. Most pieces involve "jazz" instruments (piano, sax, drums); a few add experimental vocals or random twists like electronics or even banjo. Nice stuff, mostly restrained and not so "inaudible."

1- Slow; later adds vocal and sci-fi sounds for an instant
2- Duo vocals: dramatic wordless flutters and hoots.
3- A swirling, scratchy gray
4- Fairly fast, quiet patter of strings (guitar, cello, 2 basses). Louder and groany near the end. Good but long (15 minutes)
5- Dual pianos, nicely thick and jumbly
6- High warbly sounds from clarinet and sax; more gutteral later
7- Piano/bass, low and dark like haunted-house music
8- Quick percussive patter, cool guitar pings, groany flute/voice
9- Gongs & ambient synth, kinda nice
10- Sax/piano, perky start, strong feel due to sax's loudness
11- Sparse chamber vocal. With what sounds like violin... but it's a banjo!
12- Ghostly, strange, spare, slow. Ends with soft, pretty piano.
