jacksoil 8/14/2013 12-inch, Jazz
Free Improvisation from masters of said genre; I’m always stoked to check out a release by Paul Flaherty because I equate him and his flowing white beard with someone who brings gifts – St. Nick! Oh, and what a present we have here; 3 tracks of improve that get’s all skronky weird by falling apart at the seams; it’s like a sonix punx’ patchwork quilt jacket made of sax x2, drums, guitar and bass with a bunch of other percussives and sonic twists for extra “hanging threads and general extraneous flaps of material”; put the jacket on, douse it with kerosene, light a match, and then run for your fucking life! A beautiful mess-terpiece! Recorded in some ancient schoolhouse native to these East Coast musical pranksters. You and I know ??this is not everyone’s cup of tea, but for those that indulge or are bi-curious, this is full on fuckin’ great!
