Free jazz trio led by Shoup's aggressive sax. Shoup is a skronky, noisy player from Seattle who's in good form here. Reuben Radding on bass and Bob Rees on drums are a spot-on rhythm section. Rees is particularly good, with lots of fast accurate rolls and a great sense of atmosphere. Nicely done.

Bass & drums fast on #1, cool interaction there

1*- Fast; more exploratory than aggressive.
2- Starts almost like a normal song! Includes a bass solo followed by some nicely aggressive playing.
3- Improvvy clatter
4- Aimless, but really blasts off after the drum solo
5- Slow. Starts quiet, moves into ominous buzz/groans.
6*- Very aggressive start and finish, true to its name.
7*- Starts as smoky film-noir jazz.
8- Fast but reserved, a nice track
