Ackley, Bruce Trio – “Hearing, the ” – [Avant]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   CD, Jazz

A ROVA goes a-roving, and connects with the
vaunted rhythm section from Masada. I wonder
if the tracks are provided as they were
recorded. It seems to me momentum mounts here,
with a turning point during the stellar seventh
track. The project gels there. Throughout
Joey Baron is a dynamo demon of drum, so
vibrant and a joy to listen to. Greg Cohen
mostly serves as an anchor, but does get to
step out and take a bow…to his bass at least
once. Ackely’s sax is high and reedy. Quite a
mix here of structure and solo.
