- Tar & Feathers by Trzaska Mazur Pand
From one skronk to another, I've just written about the Sharrock/Brotzmann set that's been unearthed by Trost and now I'm moving back to the present day (ish) with this CD which records the first meeting of three Hungarian musicians - on sax and clarinet Nikolaj Trzaska, on acoustic bass Rafal Mazur and on drums Balasz Pandi.
It's a muscular free jazz rumble but made fairly accessible by the lively East-meets-West melodicism, hypnotic cyclic patterns and droney honks of Trzaska while the twin rumble of Mazur and Pandi often takes quite a jazz-rock fusion feel, with the drummer (who's worked with the likes of Merzbow, Mats Gustafsson and Venetian Snares) building up an impressive head of steam with crisp snare work and wildly splashing cymbals.
As far as free skronk goes this is a pretty listenable and light-hearted offering.
