It's Rock and Roll, but not as we know it, Jim...
on 11 October 2006
After a slightly disappointing "Viaticum", we are now back on track with an album of ferocity and tenderness. This is "Seven Days of Falling" and "Strange Place for Snow" with added menace.
A bass player who obviously thinks he is Jimi Hendrix - with screaming "feed-back" lines, a drummer who sounds as if he could have been in Smashing Pumpkins or Van Der Graaf - and a pianist who out-Jarretts Keith Jarrett!
But it's Jazz, Jim. It says it's Jazz on the Tin. And Jazz it surely is - but with such ferocity - spiralling piano runs, howling bass-lines and the approaching thunderstorm on drums.
Brilliant! (and thanks, Amazon for popping it into my recommendations...)
