Album Review

Aaly Trio and Ken Vandermark – “Live at the Glenn Miller Cafe ” – [Wobbly Rail]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   CD, Jazz

Live rollercoaster jazz that really has
the spirit of rock’n’roll…white hot
knuckles clench flaming saxaphones. Plain
ol’ genuis Mats Gustaffson teems up with
certified MacArthur Genius Ken Vandermark
for some wildhorsepowerhouse braying over
Kjell Nordeson’s avalanche drums. Inspired
Ayler sailing on “Ghosts”…including a
Peter Janson slap-n-rattle solo at the
end. A great balance of skronk ‘n’ swing
like the Brotzman Octet/Tentet on Okkadisk.
I give it an AA++
