WALTER / HALVORSON / EVANS: Electric Fruit
Thirsty Ear, 2011

AVANT-GARDE – Three of the most strikingly original instrumental voices in avant-jazz join forces as a trio. Peter Evans seems to turn his trumpet inside out as he chatters and wheezes; Mary Halvorson’s robot-on-acid guitar sound mixes molten bleeps and gloops with fuzzed-out shockwaves, and Weasel Walter ties it together with free-jazz drumming that hurls the music into orbit or draws it deep inside itself at will. Remarkably weird stuff, highly recommended for out-jazz fans.

Try any track. Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 3

1. 8:58 – jittery sounds join in a lumpy mass; has exploratory & quiet stretches
2. 11:21 – quick melodic guitar collapses, spars w/ drums; trumpet spins over anxious flow; wall of guitar; percussive scurry & ominous bubbling
3. 4:22 – solo trumpet scampers, guitar melts all over skittery drums, quiet end
4. 6:53 – trio pokes & prods; drifts into tick-tock rhythms and slippery noodles
5. 15:38 – quietly warped strands; lonely trumpet in drum maze; guitar leads a surge, but everyone scatters; creepy wanderings, cool drum solo
6. 7:27 – very spacious: slowly builds, drops to silence, comes back, just ends
