Album Review

Fasteau, Kali. Z. / Jordan, Kidd – “Live At The Kerava Jazz Festival: Finland ” – [Flying Note]

Cousin Mary   1/12/2009   CD, Jazz

Kali Fasteau, multi-instrumentalist and improv diva, plays a different instrument on each of the nine tracks. Some harsh, some lyrical, a real tour de force. Fine work from Kidd Jordan on sax and Newman Taylor Baker on percussion.

Notes on instruments:
Mizmar: double reed wind instrument.
Nai: end blown flute.
Talking drum: West African drum whose pitch can be regulated (to talk). The player puts the drum under one shoulder and beats it with a stick, raising or lowering the pitch by squeezing or releasing the drum’s strings with the upper arm.
