Review: There's no telling what Austrian woodwind artist Max Nagle will pull out of his stockpile of tricks. He’s a premier progressive jazz acolyte and prominent improviser Here, Nagl's nonet sculptures a program formed on traditional concepts with a nouveau attitude. But his concentrated focus and uncanny manner of bridging multiple gaps all at once, generates a source of inspiration.

**3/ Rapsodie (6:32) – Theremin starts> slow haunting jam with saxes on top slowly builds in volume & intensity> > pause> slow cacophonous jam> fade
**4/ Pamela (2:47) – violin starts> slow haunting jam with Theremin intersecting with violin on top swells in volume, then fades
*5/ Schweissfilm (5:45) – horns start> uptempo jam with horns up front swings into full tilt rocking jam> drum solo> uptempo jam swings in a different direction, then returns to original romp> trombone solo> quick shift to slow jam with piano up front> fade
6/ Do Muang (4:54) – (spoken word intro)> guitar starts> slow as molasses jam with horns on top builds in volume> slow fade
*7/ Trampolin (4:26) – full band starts> rocking uptempo jam like king crimson slows to crescendo, then rocks out full tilt with vocals interspersed> slows to crescendo end
8/Bulova (4:19) – trumpet/sax in off-kilter duet starts> slow off-kilter full band jam> builds to midtempo with circus overtones> fade
