Jazz improvisations by musicians with chops. Loose structure, tight playing. Modern but not far-out.

1.Starts w/scrabbling guitar & drums, first half mid-fast, then a quiet & slow middle, comes back at end.
2.Flute intro w/extended technique, the band swarms to a slow promenade, speeds up to a frenzied end.
+3.Sweet flute/guitar/bass intro gives way to dissonant and spacey intervals, F voc scat- sounds like a 60’s happening with bouts of freakout. Meanders a bit but I appreciate the energy.
+4.Stacatto interlude
+5.Lonely droning, wailing wind instruments and wordless vocals. More texture than anything else.
6.squawky horns and nervous drums, like a field with rocky patches
7.Mellow noodling jazz, with decoherent bits
