Talibam! – “Ordination of The Globetrotting Conscripts ” – [Azul Discografica]

If you want to know how passionate Talibam! are about improvised music, read the text underneath the CD holder (despite the clear plastic, much squinting and manoeuvring is required). The music plays out with such passion, producing a set of tunes surprisingly individualistic for improvisation. The band will go to great lengths, even serving up improvised (and mostly unintelligible) lyrics on track 4. Everything can vary – instruments, tempo, genre, mood – both within and between songs. It is at times difficult to believe that this is all improvised, as the musicians are so well synchronized. Full of surprises at every turn – very entertaining and rewarding listening.
