Sharrock, Linda Network, The – “They Begin to Speak” – [Improvising Beings]

Hemroid The Leader   8/7/2017   CD, Jazz

Somewhere between AHH! and UH! lie these collectively improvised free jazz livestock orgies out on improvising beings. The same 50-minute-plus composition is performed in the studio on disc 1 and live on disc 2. Linda Sharrock’s post-stroke vocals are wild and primal. Very challenging and rewarding. The sidemen are right along with her, Itaru Oki, Makoto Sato, Eric Zinman, Mario Rechturn et al. CD1’s larger group’s collective improvising recalls Ornette Coleman Free Jazz LP. CD2 is a smaller group and it gets raw.
