Murray, Kevin Quartet – “Primary Sound” – [Subruckus Collective]
Four tunes recorded straight to tape from local quartet. Led by 16-year old drummer and Subruckus Collective label head Kevin Murray. It’s 1 of 40 copies.
Opening tune by Murray, 2 & 4 are improvisations, 3 is an Ayler tune.
The recording is straight-to-tape, very casual in feel, like a jam session or live set. Murray played with William Parker at school and it inspired him. The band feels for a way out but never gets too far gone or even particularly skronky, rhythm keeps it moving. Very enjoyable.
