Album Review
Reviewed 2009-06-28 
Adventurous and accessible free-jazz trio of sax, bass, and drums, a local group led by ex-Chicagoite Aram Shelton. Melodic work with loose structures (i.e. lots of space for soloing).

1- An upbeat melody (maybe borrowing from Ayler a bit?) with some aggressive drumming. Sunny disposition overall but gets ferocious.
2- A brisk, soulful melody, played with breezy energy.
3- Relaxed bass clarinet melody. Starts with a patient, spacious drum solo.
4- Midtempo to slow, ambling
5- Fast, tricky bass clarinet work. Slow, quiet opening.
6- Pensive but rather tough opening, a nice bass solo, and then a choppy aggressive attack. Ends calmly.
