Format: Audio CD
THIS album, for my money at any rate, deserves to be a cornerstone of any serious collection of contemporary jazz.
Paying homage to one of the founding fathers of avant-garde and free jazz, Ornette Coleman, this album brought the music bang up to date when it was released at the end of the 1980s.
The line-up is remarkable - two alto saxophones, two drummers and a lone double bass. The result is a lot of noise and nothing spared in the way of energy.
The music moves at a frantic pace, John Zorn and Tim Bryne screech, squeal, honk and squawk at 90mph with the double drums thundering in hot pursuit with the bass driving things along. Many tracks are barely a minute in length but that's not necessarily a bad thing - intense performance like this are best taken in shot glass measures with a pause for breath in between.
The cover artwork is pretty remarkable as well - a set of cartoon-like images which looked best on the original vinyl LP sleeve, the scaled-down CD format sadly makes the detail rather difficult to enjoy. Too bad.
Dinner jazz this ain't, this is music to set the pulse racing - when Allen Ginsberg describes angel-headed hipsters searching for an 'angry fix' in Howl, this album provides a whole set of furious aural fixes. Hear it and get hooked!
