Jorgensmann, Theo Quartet – “to Ornette – Hybrid Identity” – [Hat Hut Records Ltd]

#1 Starts on a woodwind on a stroll through the woods, with reaction action from Klaus Kugel. At 2:20 bass comes in, and at 2:50 the vibes come in. At 3:33 the clarinetist falls asleep. Some melodies don’t fit in, but most do, with 20-30 in #1 alone. At 5 minutes the introduction and foundation is all done and the vibes take over, when exploratory role is handed off from Theo to Dell is. At 5:50 Theo wakes up and reestablishes the edges of the song structure, and the final thirty seconds is quite Iran sounding. #2 Bowed bass, more alert stuff, and gets quite out there. #3 after riffing analysis the path of the composition can be intuited when basing the knowledge on the amount and level of expansion retraction and other linear aspects like what note slides are taken as opposed to other routes. A well pruned original by Theo and expect a sudden halt at the end. #4 Quiet bass and eerie drums. Cymbal scrape and slow paced harmonics for spacing out. #5 Eric Dolphy “Out To Lunch” comes to mind. #6 Shows off the quartet’s chops. #7 Lovely, sleepy, ambience of Jazz.
