Album Review

Field, Ken – “Pictures of Motion ” – [Sfz]

Thurston Hunger   10/1/2005   CD, Jazz

Pour a little saxophone syrup on your speaker
cones.. Ken Field’s sophomore solo release is
heavily layered swirls. Monolithic cascades
sliding like monks at matins…not quite the
(Odeon) Pope, but good. Field is also in
The Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, as well as a
soundtrack composer…BUT he learned a lot on
the streets, well at least on “Sesame Street”
In fact two songs here are allegedly for that
show, I’d bet #6 & #8,they taste the most like
kid’s cereal. #11 is the most ambitious piece.
On cuts without percussion, key changes sorta
waft…from soothing to hive-talking buzzsax.
More of the former than the latter, sadly.
Big Bird Songs of the Mesozoic.
