Album Review
Wedge
Reviewed 2011-04-07 
Energy jazz: Improvised free-jazz sax with deep ties to the '60s (Hasan Abdur-Razzaq was a teen in Cleveland taking cues from Albert Ayler). Mostly sax/bass/drums ecstasy here, energetic and fast -- but also a few world-like tracks with either percussive or meditative sounds. Overall quite spiritual, in a jazz sense. Instrumental; FCC clean.

1- Gradual rumble into squawky fluttering
2- Passionate, keening. Drum intro.
3- Mostly strings: chaotic chamber music. Fierce sax later.
4- Slowish, w/violin. Appropriately spacey.
5- Fairly fast, esp. the bass. Good energy; cooldown ending.
6- Strangely swingy, very Ayler-like, songlike
7- Eastern/mystical w/very quiet dropout; not good for airplay
8- Bluesy, a healing melody. Quiet start w/bells.
9- Cool kalimba-like bass at start & end. Fast middle.
10- Percussion break: a sea of rhythm
11- An exotic-sounding reed instrument, cool tiny jazz bass notes
12- Buzzy and active
13- Sparse, exploratory. Catches a spark at the end.
14- Short outburst including yelling, a nice conclusion (and not too chaotic)
