RANDY HUNT / JOSH ALLEN / TIMOTHY ORR: Drudgery
Edgetone, 2011

FREE JAZZ – Very edgy Bay Area trio with a wide-ranging but unified sound. Not all about noise, though they certainly have that in spades. They have a strong group personality, brash and full of spirit, diving in and going for it without taking themselves too seriously. And they get fine results.

Try any track. Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 9

1. 6:36 – sawing bass, raw sax & tumbling drums fall into sustained trio agitation
2. 5:22 – laid-back bass; cool drum patter picks up steam, sax runs the maze
3. 5:30 – slouched feel: rumbles and flashes like a fast-approaching thunderstorm
4. 5:51 – prodding sax pokes incessantly at rhythmic jumble, energetic burst later
5. 4:37 – high resonance, misc percussion & madly spinning sax, builds itself up
6. 4:07 – uptempo and tense: everybody pushes together, breaks down, blasts off
7. 7:41 – creaky sax/bass drone, yelps over assorted percussion, drops at the end
8. 5:14 – sax strains to escape mechanical pounding rhythm, gets pretty loud
9. 8:20 – quiet fluttering, picks up very gradually, then fast loud skronk; falls back
10. 6:52 – sax makes quiet – then aggressive – statements over scattered rhythm
