Album Review

Lake, Oliver & Smoker, Paul & Ellis, Lisle & Looney, Scott – “Urban Ruminations” – [Metaphysical]

Cousin Mary   3/15/2010   CD, Jazz

Ten improvised pieces by this powerhouse quartet – of particular interest is Looney’s piano and prepared (track 9, for one) piano and its contrast with frenetic, screeching, blatting, trumpeting from the horns. Sometimes irritating, occasionally endearing, better after multiple listens to sort through the complexity. Difficult, but worth the effort.
