It is a session of free improvisation of remarkable grace and clarity, and NOT a chaotic blast of noise which the preceding list might imply.
These are three musicians at the top of their form and skills, and their interactions balance, build on each other, and form structures and developments of great beauty. The recording quality is excellent. Do not miss this one: available from Bandcamp as download, streaming or CD:
Editor's Note: I was not aware that artists can use emojis in the titles of their tracks!
SOME NICE CREAKS
Ben Bennett – drum set, Jack Wright – saxophone
Two of the musicians from the NEVER disc go at it in this session, which overall is
quieter and more intimate. Ben & Jack seem to be talking to each other in moods
which go from meditative to excited. Most of the time they are both talking at the same time, but their individual voices are clear and varied; it is a delight to be present.
Another excellent recording, available from Bandcamp as download or streaming:
