Improvised performances of Ferlinghetti’s poems, which are more lyrical fragments than “poems” per se. Strange meandering fem. vox accompanied with some energetic Indian percussion (tabla, mridangam, ghatam) and sax (hence the “world/jazz” tag?). Interesting and unusual, if at times a tad artificial.|
*Track 1*: The instrumentalists really shine on this one. The sax is dark and bouncy, the vox. are peppy and over-dubbed, and the percussion is lovely lovely lovely. FCC? (“ass”)
Track 3: Slow, drawn-out, over-dubbed vox over fast, tense percussion
Track 4: Slow-to-mid tempo, lots of soprano crooning, great tabla, and swirling sax.
Track 5: Slow-to-mid tempo, loungy and seductive. Faux French lyrics?
Track 6: “Stereo” vox. over increasingly noisy, ringing sax and tabla. Unsettling.
Track 7: FCC —"But halfass drunken sailors / staggered thru her sleep / scattering semen / over the virgin landscape"
