STARLICKER: Double Demon
Delmark, 2011

POSTMODERN JAZZ – Another killer group from Chicago cornetist Rob Mazurek, this time a trio with star vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz and Tortoise drummer John Herndon. Their music is hard, edgy, and percussive, but with a surreal sheen – it pounds the floor and kicks up clouds of sparkling dust. The grooves are unstoppable, and that’s just a wee bit frightening. Turn it up and let it roll right over you. Wow!

All excellent! Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 4, 5

1. 6:13 – bright splashy intro, then a hard rolling sound that really digs in
2. 6:22 – tumbling trio improv for 3 mins, then a locomotive juggernaut groove
3. 4:07 – happy vibes smashed by drums, pause, then bold and shining
4. 5:40 – energetic, urgent pulse, switches to a lopsided, repetitive groove
5. 9:22 – slow, haunting for 3:00, gets HUGE, 2nd half has a tough swagger
6. 6:33 – fast, celebratory start, becomes jumpy, agitated in second half

[ Fo ] - September 2011
