Smalltown Supersound are going hard on the free jazz this year - so much so that they've set up new sub-label Actions for Free Jazz to accommodate the load. AFJ's latest foray into the genre pairs New York saxophonist Joe McPhee with Norwegian drummer Paal Nilssen-Love. The duo cycle through six impressionistic skronk workouts on new LP Lift Every Voice And Sing, tackling originals as well as pieces by James Weldon Johnson and Thelonious Monk.
