As It Grows

CD (Item 612741) Hat Hut (Switzerland), 2002 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 5

Freewheeling, open-ended work from this vibrantly creative trio – working here in a style that's not unlike some of the more offbeat work on ECM in the early days! And by that, we don't mean the atmospheric sounds – but the rare avant sessions that would show up at the label – particularly the groundbreaking piano work of Paul Bley – as it might be said that Lossing here has a similar feel for sound shapes and circular patterns – a mode that's inherently rhythmic, yet free from most conventional rhythms at the same time! Of course, the other players have a lot to do with that – especially drummer Paul Motian, who's perfect for the set – working here with bassist Ed Schuller, on a set of tracks that features the five-part "Suite Of Time" – plus "Motion Units", "Coyote Jumps", "Nagual", and "Verse".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
