Album Review

Sherman, Collin/Suitable Benchmarks of Reform

carsonstreet   1/27/2022   CD, Jazz

Based in New York, New York, Collin Sherman creates experimental electro-acoustic jazz, ambient, drone, and noise. Collin says of this album: Suitable Benchmarks of Reform, my thirteenth release, sticks to the same process I have used on past releases, where I play all of the instruments myself and overlay the parts. This album is essentially in two sections; the first being a collection of three independent tunes, and the second being a four-part suite.” Some tracks are completely improv (“Rival Machinations” track 2) and some are pretty close to traditional jazz (“Phalanx Strictures” track 1) but most are a very satisfying mix. Nothing here will take the paint off your walls.
