Album Review

Thompson, William A. IV – Bagdad Music Journal (High Mayhem)

outlier   1/31/2007   A Library

An artist whose Natl Guard unit reported to Iraq in 2004 (and held there under stop loss) returns stateside to offer these reflections on our times infusing Baghdadi and Iraqi prisoner samples into the heart of contempo-experimental jazz.?? Less directional than most jazz experiments, WATIV pieces drift with a haunting hovering sound.?? WATIV’s
compositions express moments of mind-wandering comtemplation never seeking resolution but gently reflecting upon impressions of events beyond one’s control.??
