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