THE RENT: Musique de Steve Lacy
Ambiances Magnetiques, 2010

AVANT-GARDE – Canadian two-horn quartet + vocals, paying tribute to (you guessed it) Steve Lacy. This is agile, frisky stuff: they really dig into the music without making museum pieces out of it. The vocals and soprano sax generally work in unison for an odd effect. FCC clean.

Susanna Hood : vocals
Kyle Brenders : soprano sax
Scott Thomson : trombone
Wes Neal : bass
Nick Fraser : drums

All tracks fun! Fo’s Picks: 2, 3, 5, 6, 9

1. 4:11 – goofy bounce, a lively swing with French vox
2. 4:52 – oddball walk & cool poem; sneaky trombone gets weird, bass break
3. 5:42 – instrumental: perky theme; sax solo goes out, trombone gets small
4. 13:20 – slow suite: glum theme, supercool sax/drum interlude; twisting vocals lead into not-a-march, under-the-radar glide, acrobatic groan
5. 2:45 – quick surrealist vox & jolly marching beat, minimalist drum solo
6. 7:47 – instrumental: slumps along nicely; drunken trombone, casual bass
7. 3:22 – uptempo instrumental: hops in circles, busy horn improv, drum solo
8. 5:28 – weird poem from perspective of a yak; crazy groaning vocal improv
9. 7:51 – two poems: spinning bounce in first half; switches to chugging march
