Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-01-31 
Free-jazz sketches frequently led by Kidd Jordan on Coltrane-esque tenor sax. Energetic, often powerful.

Multi-instrumentalist Kali Fasteau normally highlights her own sounds on her CDs, but this time she invites some all-star guests. In addition to Jordan, there's Bobby Few on piano and Sirone (of the Revolutionary Ensemble) on bass. Recorded at home, leading to middling fidelity on the Bobby Few tracks, which were recorded longer ago (3,6,10,12,15). Great sounds all around, though.

1,9- Grand. Stormy tenor sax with seasick synth washes
4,8- Drum and sax. 4 is high energy; 8 is mellower.
3,10- Duets of sax over Few's wistful piano chords; dreamy and fast

2- Fast-stabbing sax over skittery harplike synth
3- Sax/piano duet, fast but wistful
5- Tumbling windswept power
6- Aggressive. Squeaky cello and hammered piano.
7- Tumbling piano-sax duet.
10- Grand, soaring. Soprano sax over gently rapid piano
11- Pitch-blended vocals; gets spacey
12- Studious quartet, a bit slower, with some nice piano & fierce sax
13- Fast, dreamy chimes
14- Tenor sax w/drums, a nice free-jazz duet
15- Blaring quartet; the calm piano waves win out for a nice ending w/sax.
