Album Review

Rejuvenation Trio, The – “Rejuvenation Voyage” – [Edgetone Records]

Cousin Mary   11/17/2010   CD, Jazz

Hasan Abdur-Razzaq and Ryan Jewell from Columbus, Ohio’s improv scene combine with Tom Abbs of New York to produce 14 noisy, frequently squawk-y tracks that show a lot of energy and satisfying interaction of reeds, percussion, strings and special effects from found objects.

Sometimes a bit hair raising, the cuts grew on me – some of the shorter tunes would be a good introduction into modern improvised jazz.

Notes: Unusual instruments include saxello (straight B??? soprano with a slightly curved neck and tipped bell), tarogato (single-reed, conical-bore woodwind), and the tongue drum (wooden box, with tongues (keys) to be played by mallets or fingers).
