Album Review

Reviewed 2005-11-12
Jazz trio of guitar, bass, drums. Cooper-Moore does a lot of experimental and improv kinds of sounds, but here he shows off his pure jazz chops (with lots of free-jazz digressions tossed around here and there) in what could be considered a straightahead setting, if you use the term really liberally. Excellent acoustic jazz that shouldn't scare away fans of the traditional sound.

1- Dusky post-bop jazz, fast and rolling
2- Soft and pretty.
3- Clattery and abstract, contemplative
4- Light, brisk. Gets into propulsive piano splashes. Slow start
5- Gentle and sentimental homage to a lost friend. Lots of drums.
6- Light random piano, ominous bass bowing. Crashing finale.
7- Dark, slowish jungle beat. Mysterious.
8- Dissonant, clunky, fast-paced
9- Pleasant bouncy jazz ditty. Like '70s Keith Jarrett.
10- Small classical-sounding exercise
