Duets of bass and saxophone -- and, on one of the three long tracks, bagpipes. Abstract improvisation with some jazzy subtext. |
The bass Paul Rogers plays here is a six-stringer (with 12 more strings that apparently aren't played but help boost the sound). It's got a nice rich sound and a higher range than a normal bass. Rogers plays in agile knots of notes; reminds me of the best moments of Michael Formanek playing in Tim Berne's Bloodcount.
1- Bagpipes!! Opens with a dramatic squall. First 5 minutes are an exciting blur. Second half features that familiar background buzz of the 'pipes, and gets into another furious run around -5:00.
2- Nimble sax & bass. Maintains energy throughout, getting quieter near the end.
3- Studious slashes of bowed bass and high-pitched sax. Doesn't move slowly but has a sparse, arty feel.
