Album Review
Wedge
Reviewed 2010-04-07 
Abstract free improvisation: Sax, guitar, bass trio. Lots of athletic bass playing, and the sax tends towards long, shrill howls -- sounds more classical than jazzy. Leandre is one of these musicians who travels the world doing improv sessions with various others, and her bass is definitely in the forefront here. Active and darkly abstract stuff, sometimes spare but overall extroverted.

1- Scrappy, formless guitar; piercing swoops of sax. Bowed bass playing strong, interesting parts
2- Sparse, loud: Cavernous plunks, shrill blares.
3- Slow and growly. Cool bowed bass intro, strong and fast. Smoother, but abstract, near the end.
4- Relaxed, with calmly shrill soprano sax.
5- Aggressive, dark, mid/fast
6- Springy guitar sounds, into wacky babbling and horn bellowing
7- Whining sax; bubbly undertow.
8- An amorphous chaotic symphony, slowly moving but brash. Starts quiet.
9- Nervous high trilling. Forceful.
10- Quirky, other-wordly pulsing, almost electronic-sounding. Quiet but fast-paced. Applause at end.
