Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-07-26 
Two-sax free jam, and it really is an all-star lineup: Marshall Allen (the Arkestra) and Kidd Jordan on sax; bassist Alan Silva and (because it's the law) William Parker; Hamid Drake on drums.

High energy session with enough slowdown points to catch your breath. Every track gets pretty fierce at some point; they're all keepers.

All tracks segue.

1*- Slow bass-y start, grows into tense shrieky sax duel
2*- Faster pace, high energy. Some sqawky, vicious bass bowing toward the end
3- A break. Quiet bass solo starts; followed by some fast, spirited playing and a quiet segue
4- Starts slow, brash, angular. Loosens up and speeds up later
5*- Relatively quiet but still forceful. Starts with a relaxed, bluesy sax soliloquy
6- Bass solo again, develops into a cluttery jungle pulse. Long, quiet ending.
