Logic -- Meshell
Lehman and drummer Tyshawn Sorey are 2/3 of the band Fieldwork; third member Vijay Iyer (piano) joins on tracks 1 and 12. These tracks feature the same complexity and dry snap of Fieldwork, the same techno-hungry 21st-century feel informed by dance electronica. But where Fieldwork is hammering and ominous, this disk has a lighter touch, a more stripped-down feel.
1- Quick-footed w/small piano.
2- Elaborate groove with a couple of sequencer breaks
3- Slow overlapping sax tones
4- Reprise of 3, longer, with drum and drum-machine breaks
7- Midtempo groove, some electronics
8- Languid sax riff backs fast drum improv
11- Eerie, fairly fast, w/sci-fi noises
12- Happy, with insistant pulsing piano/sax
5, 6, 9, 10- Chaotic little grooves, with popping mid/fast saxes over drums and synth chords. All rather similar; 9 and 10 are more energetic, while 5 has a faster start.
