Out to Lunch. The fresh and invigorating quality to the music comes from the sharp corners supplied by Adasiewicz and Daisy, that supply a percussive foundation for the bass and clarinet to bob and weave around in interesting ways. John Corbett’s liner notes reference the work of Ornette Coleman and pioneering clarinetist John Carter and their work in developing bebop and blues into something that extended beyond both of them. The music moves through diverse patterns, developing the abstract lean corners of “Brooklyn Lines” and “Ukranian Village” which meld sharp metallic vibes with strong percussion and bass. In response to this challenge, Falzone loops and weaves through the thickets of sound. The group stretches out dynamically on “Ground” developing a captivating performance as the energy waxes and wanes in a rewarding fashion. More melodic material dominates the latter half of the album, on the gently swinging “Carol’s Burgers” and the cerebral “Sciuridae.” KLANG: Brooklyn Lines . . . Chicago Spaces - amazon.com
