Larks And Loons
Free jazz, Chicago style, meaning a reverence for the jazz tradition amid tumultuous free passages and pensive quiet segments. |
Quartet of sax, bass, and two drummers. The double drums doesn't have an effect at first glance, but they produce some interesting African-influenced rhythms behind the sax/bass improvising, and give the music a hard-driven energy even in slower passages. Overall, an awesome live session.
1- A fast sprint that lasts 18 minutes.
2- A slower, dark mood that picks up in the second half.
3- A bit dark, restrained, stretching into a mid/fast jam. Second half quieter, more abstract, with a ferocious ending.
4- Fast improv that gets into a hard primitive stomp. Long drums solo and a nice choppy coda.
5- Friendly midtempo stroll, melodic and upbeat, not slow but in no hurry. Gets strong in tone/attitude, in drumming.
6- Fast pecking on sax, a jumpy playful mood. Calms after 3 mins; says fast but opens up more, with sax runs building to longer flowing lines. Abrupt ending.
