Album Review
Wedge
Reviewed 2009-05-28 
Sax/drum duets, improvised free jazz in short doses. (Only a few tracks exceed 4 minutes.) Mostly upbeat, with a casual air. Carrier keeps to an airy sound with his sax, sticking to musical forms rather than all-out abstraction. Lambert adds some solid, chattery drumming but also insers the occasional whistle or noisemaker for a different sound.

Pretty much any track makes a nice little snack. A good followup to their "Kathmandu" live duo CD of a couple years ago.

More tuneful -- 1,2, 5, 9, 11, 13, 18
More abstract -- 4, 10, 17, 20

1- Pleasant
2- Upbeat
3- Wood flute, a zenlike mid/fast
4- Clattery, clangy statement.
5- Upbeat. Clackety percussion work.
6- Cool rolling drums, like a waterfall. Sprinkles of sax that become a gnarled flow later. Nice intensity here, a less laid-back track.
7- Wood flute and ocarina? Tweety; goofing around.
8- Thoughtfully tuneful
9- Shuffly beat, calmly edge-walking sax
10- Fast drum clatter, warbly sax
11- Smoothly tuneful sax
12- A chipper stroll, turns into an upbeat winding journey (6:51)
13- Perky and upbeat,
14- Chipper; develops patiently
15- Sounds of water + drum clutter. (0:47)
16- Touches of blues. A nice jam. (6:41)
17- Short & slashing
18- Pleasant after cluttery start
19- Briskly jazzy
20- A touch more sour. Mid/fast.
