Album Review

Reviewed 2005-07-29 
Abstract snippets covering a variety of moods. It's like a game, like the pieces were intentionally confined and hurried ("OK, this'll be a slow one -- GO!") Which is a nice change considering this band tends to do hour-long pieces, as per their previous September Winds CDs. Another difference is that those CDs were recorded is echoey settings, while this one is a close-mic'ed studio session. Fun blips.

The band is four woodwinds and a trombone. Watch for Evan Parker on "tubax," a kind of tuba-sax.

1- Slow start; fast and sudden end
2- Fast
3- Almost melodic! Tumbling horns
4- Quiet screeching
5- Low crawling growl
6- Popping clatter
7- Airy buzz
8- Slow and growly
9- Quiet popping
10- Fast
11- Slow and artsy
12- Fast fluttering; circular breathing
13- Drone with slow "world" solo
14- Solos over long dissonant tones
15- Chaotic big-band harmonies
16- Trombone over fast sax flutters
17- Quiet but fast suite
18- Near-didgeridoo drone
19- Peaceful mini-suite, loud second half
20- A bit crazy
21- Grumbly "tubax," spare
22- Fast, tumbling
23- Halting chaos
