Album Review

Gregorio, Guillermo Trio – “Red Cube(D) ” – [Hat Hut Records Ltd]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   CD, Jazz

Tightrope tension across the wound-up
wires of Mat Maneri’s electric violin.
Pandelis Karayorgis tosses in some piano
pratfalls, while trio leader Gregorio
inserts some almost comedic melodic runs.
He quotes from safer times on the ground
or grounded in the scores of earlier works
but most of the pieces spend a lot of time
up in the free jazz air. While Gregorio’s
sax and clarinet flutter, paradoxically
there’s a heaviness here…from pregnant
pause and slow whole notes.
