KFJC new album review (July 31, 1996)
It can be said this was a long time in the making since Dennis
Warren, Gil, Owens, and Malik all went to school in the Black
Music Division of Antioch College, directed by none other than
Cecil Taylor. It is jazz and improve in pretty complex form.
There is skronk, but it isn't just sploogin' cause the
percussion is intense and creates an entire layer of sound that
doesn't just provide the rhythm, it competes with the horns.
Adam's Garden Sketch is the simplest, and most groove ridden
track. Mallets is a 25:30 747 ride in turbulence, that can be
played over "Runaway Train." Some one should sneak these guys
into some club near the Olympics and when these fat ugly
American touristas come into the joint looking for dinner club
jazz and a high cholesterol cream butter and cheese lobster
dish, FMRJ can just blow them a new colostomy bag.
