Inzinzac – “Inzinzac” – [High Two]
Multi-national trio (guitar/sax/drums) plays spirited yet convoluted compositions. I guess it’s jazz; it gets loud, I can tell you that much. I love Alban Bailly’s angular guitar technique which sometimes approaches Beefheart territory; he composed all the music too. As much as I like this CD, I must admit that the constant changes of direction and time signature within a piece can be a bit confusing. Maybe I haven’t heard it enough times to really get a grip on it. There are some quiet passages but the music is mostly high energy and exhilarating. I’m willing to bet these guys are a hell of a live band.
