A very modern reworking of Eric Dolphy's 1964 free-jazz classic. Tougher, noisier, freer, brash. Dolphy's compositions are tangibly intact but beefed up for the '00s and thrown into rougher hands. It's great.|
Tracks 1 and 4 preserve some of that bold '60s horn sound and use vibraphone as a backdrop, as the original did. From there, it just gets nuts. Touches like turntables and Otomo's electric guitar -- things obviously not on the original. Plus, Otomo has lined up a barrage of horn players, for a variety of soloing voices. (Dolphy's album had him and Freddie Hubbard). Instrumental. FCC clean.
1- Heavy and chunky; multiple solos over tinkly electronics sounds and tough drums.
2- The Slow One, made less pretty here. Starts with a slow-burn acid romp, turns into a cavalcade of wailing horns.
3- GAAAAA! A japanoise punk explosion! GO! GO! GO!
4- A swaying '60s line, mid/fast, with high-energy chaos improv. The cutesy chime of vibes next to careening, wild horns. Disturbingly long pauses, including one around -2:00, just to mess with you. SONG ENDS 10 SECONDS EARLY!
5- Bold midtempo horns, into a mystical electronics drone. Big tumultuous improv later. Second half is VERY quiet. You might want to play just the first half (or, for quiet late-night eerieness, just the second half).
