Trio free/improv jazz, led by Joe Giardullo on sax and bass clarinet, backed with bass and drums. Appears to be mostly improvised jams with energetic but restrained playing -- quite nice. |
Tracks 1 and 2 use hand drums for an accessible "world music" kind of sound.
1- Fast but with that calm "world music" sound (due to the use of hand drums)
2*- Popping bass clarinet and more cool hand drums
3- Propulsive, with flute. Starts all floaty/psychedelic. Good stuff.
4- PIANO! Soft and a bit loungy, actually very pretty, after an avant-garde intro
5*- Fast burbling rumble
6*- This one isn't *slow*, but it wanders, an ambling walk led by buzzing bass clarinet (some didjeridoo-like sounds). Drums are crisp and bright.
7- Duet: Bass and fluid squawky sax. On the quiet side.
