MAP – “Fever Dream” – [TAIGA Records]
Three sides of improvised guitar / percussion / bass action. Just sit back and enjoy the ride as this ensemble spins out its sparse, spacey brand of improv. Mary Halvorson on guitar drops in quick flurries of notes, unusual chords, and harmonics. Unorthodox percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani adds textures and tones, tapping and shaking and bowing whatever’s within reach. Reuben Radding’s bass sort of builds a bridge between the two, bowing and thundering and throwing in some percussive sounds too. Good stuff.
