Kenton And I

Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-03-06 
Quartet led by guitar and clarinet, an accessible package with some avant-jazz leanings. Lots of dissonant angles in the unison clarinet/guitar lines, for an artsy air while being driving and perky (#7 reminds me of Tim Berne a bit). Great stuff. FCC clean.

1- Fast paced and a bit playful. Really fast intro/outro.
2- Slow dissonant start, still rather pretty. Mid/fast soloing that gets into nice intensity.
3- Mid/fast, pokey angles. Perky. Quiet scribbly middle.
4- Lingering feel, crisp Mediterranean(?)/Euro acoustic guitar
5- Action-scene drama, softly fast. Crisp.
6- Gentle mid/fast. Pretty; slight European air
7- Perky chamber jazz. Fast, not a dense feel.
8- Peaceful, builds into sad intensity w/Neil Young-like strumming.
9- Fairly fast, w/Asian ceremonial tinges.
10- Pumping, a bit chaotic. Mid/fast torrent of guitar notes w/energetic drums, droney horns tracing the background.
