Dave Rempis blows here in a mighty nice setting – a "percussion quartet" that features the twin drums of Tim Daisy and Frank Rosaly, along with some heavy basswork from Ingebrigt Haker Flaten! The album features two long tracks – both freewheeling and wonderful – with Rempis deftly moving between alto, tenor, and baritone sax – blowing openly, yet also swinging nicely too! Like some of the other best projects on the 482 label, there's a great balance here between improvisation and structure – a real return to the best modernist moments of decades back – handled here by a quartet of bold young players. Titles include "If You Were A Waffle & I Was A Bee" and "This Is Not A Tango".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
