MUSIC REVIEW BY Adam Greenburg, All Music Guide

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Two-thirds of the group formerly known as Flatland return for a new debut with this one, a recording of a live improv session on one of Seattle's better avant-garde radio stations. The music is relatively similar to that of Flatland, with the notable removal of a bass and addition of a sax, courtesy of Saul Cline, a session player occasionally with Matt Jorgensen + 451. The atmosphere is particularly spacey here, but generally aims for the relaxed mood rather than the excited improv of the classic free jazzers (Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler, etc). There is some movement here and there, generally clashing sounds until a coherent whole can emerge from the wreckage. It's a nice romp through contemporary electric free jazz, a subgenre that too often finds its way into rock fusion anymore.
