Bennett, Ben & Wright, Jack – “Tangle” – [Public Eyesore]

Experimental jazz improvisation at it’s extreme side. Ben Bennett on drums and percussion which means anything that can be squeezed, banged, dropped or rubbed and Jack Wright on alto and soprano saxophone. Bennett is known for losing himself when performing live, rolling around on the floor, scratching things with his feet, grabbing at what is near him and unaware of what is coming next due to his almost trance state. It’s easy to visualize this when listening to these selections. The cacophony is stunning. It’s rough. It’s edgy. It’s mind melting. And it is fascinating. Jack Wright has a tonal quality and control over his saxophones which keeps up with Bennett’s drumming but does not take a back seat to the chaos. From subtle rifts to squelching and squeeking bursts where you can almost feel the reed splitting, Wright’s sonic explorations anchor the storm while participating in it. These two musicians have performed together in numerous group projects. This duo project lets them shine, playing off of each other as only seasoned pros can do it.
