Dyes And Lyes
Brisk free jazz, a sax-bass-drums trio playing in a '60s tradition. Another album inspired by Hurricane Katrina, with plenty of ire for the government (track 1). Most of the music radiates energy and spirit; tracks 4 and 5 get meditative and could be considered a bit darker. Really nice stuff. FCC clean.|
1- Pleasant springtime melody, with some spoken words: "Mother Nature just staged a terrorist attack on our ass, and ... not a muslim was blamed." Gets into sparse fast jamming.
2- Mid/fast with high energy, especially in the drums that lead it off with a controlled flurry. Measured sax keeps things in check.
Calmer second half.
3- Fast flowing, with fleet bass intro
4- Free-form exploration, lots of wind-chime percussion, a slow pace that picks up later as the clarinet kicks in
5- A mystical procession. Starts slow, building into a midtempo jam with hyper jangly percussion and some squeaky sax.
6- Happy, bucolic harmonica and whistling, kind of a calm after the storm. Some cool bass/drum duetting.
