The Truth And The Abstract Blues
FUN! A glorious, accessible mash-up: Horns dishing out instrumental doo-wop, mariachi music, minimalism, free jazz solos, big band, danceable beats, undanceable odd time signatures, and a sense of humor. |
Tracks go in multiple phases, so if the first couple minutes don't grab you, just keep listening... it's like composer Andrew Durkin is taking the band on a massive road trip every time.
Lots of high volumes and strong tempos for an exhiliarating ride. Also lots of smart-ass breaks and the occasional free-jazz attack, giving the session a creative, hip, humorous air -- not a plain old big band at all.
1- Doo-wop piano, into a swingy, seasick carnival riff. Insane, cartoony-fast ending.
2- New Orleans jazz intro, swingy and swaying. Chiming interlude, then a fast stomping ending.
3- Fiesta meets minimalist repetition -- mid/fast. Gets into sparse but fast avant-classical noodling later, in a jokey way.
4- Like Western theme music (the "Magnificent Seven" kind). Gentle mid/fast in 5/8 time.
5- Jaunty strolling riff, like a '50s TV commercial where everybody's smiling. Gets into an odd-time riff w/crazy sax solo, then into a FUNKY place with wah-wah guitar. Lots of repetitious riffs but really worth it.... you can hear that initial riff (which just burrows into your brain) get progressively more "drunk" as time passes.
6- Serious canon, w/overlapping horn lines. No soloing.
7- Latin dance with heavy drums, catchy and heavy. Gets into odd interludes of weird chamber horns fading in and out. Fast, jerky finale in 9/8 time.
8- Big dramatic intro, then: Fast, danceable R&B / Slow mock-graduation music / Really fast free-jazz trio / Short ending.
