Emergency String (X)tet Meet Rent Romus, The – “Emergency Rental” – [Edgetone Records]

Cousin Mary   11/16/2010   CD, Jazz

2010 recording in San Francisco captures a collaboration of strings (violins, cellos, bass koto, and contrabass) with Rent Romus on alto and soprano sax. Exploratory, experimental improvisation works more on some tracks than others for the listener to this CD – some of the pieces might very well have been more striking in live performance.

(X)tet name refers to a varying number of players, also the X factor inherent in improvisation. Tracks 5 & 6 have more sax sound; on other tracks, sax is less prominent.
