Album Review

Yeh, C. Spencer / Flaherty, Paul / Kelley, Greg – “New York Nuts & Boston Beans” – [Important Records]

Thee Opinataur   3/21/2012   CD, Jazz

Live Recording from 2007 in Brooklyn N.Y. and Boston, MA. Five Untitled tracks. Tracks 1&2 consist of improvisational noise with Yeh on violin and Flaherty on Tenor Sax angrily battling back and forth with each forcefully expressing their own opinions. Yeh is impressive vocalizing scattered, aggressive gibberish while pleading with Flaherty. Both tone it down for a while, yet end where they started in wild abrasive noise highlighted by Yeh’s screeching violin. Tracks 4&5 bring in noise trumpet extraordinaire Greg Kelley. These tracks are more composed consisting of?? breathy drone?? from Kelley, lyrical notes from Flaherty’s Alto Sax and more voice instrumentation from Yeh. These three seasoned improvisors’ create chaotically beautiful noise together.
