Album Review

Tight Meat Duo – “Vanishing Fist ” – [Bo’weavil Recordings]

Max Level   5/19/2007   CD, Jazz

Four long pieces of outrageously raw sax/drums improv from this Glasgow duo. David Keenan wails like his alto is on fire while Alex Neilson pounds and crashes on his kit. The liner notes mention some of history’s great sax/drums jazz duos (Coltrane/Ali, etc), no surprise there, but they also mention Iggy Stooge and later there’s a fuck you. Does that tell you anything? The best I can come up with is these guys obviously love jazz so much they decided they needed to kill it so nobody else can have it. There’s no Interstellar anything on here; this is music dragged on the ground, beat up, torn apart, and hoisted in the town square as a warning. As a bonus, the recording quality isn’t very good, making this CD even more outstanding.
