Nauseef/Mori/Parker/Laswell – “Near Nadir” – [Tzadik]

Innovative laptop inventions share the stage with soprano sax, bass, and percussion. When I saw that Bill Laswell and Mark Nauseef were involved, I more or less expected some deep grooves, but there’s nothing like that here; the tracks are all scattered-sounding improvisations, full of space and ambience and texture. Ikue Mori creates electronic atmospheres to improvise in, Evan Parker’s sax probes every which way, Laswell’s bass chimes and rumbles, and Nauseef constantly drops colorful percussion surprises. Mix translation by Laswell. Do I even need to mention that this CD sounds amazing on headphones?
