A nice high-octane recording by trombonist Samuel Blaser. One of those albums that gives the impression of velocity even when the music is just a simmering cauldron of tension. When the temperature does rise, this music echoes the 1960s West Coast New Thing of John Handy’s innovative ensemble… a blend of early-incubation Free Jazz and trip-jam 60′s Rock. Some of the great qualities of that music was its fiery disposition and the wide open expanses for instruments to take turns as lead acrobat. Blaser delivers much of the same here, though his brand of avant-garde rests in the modern context, which is more of a multi-layered discombobulation than the mysteriously stacked architecture of 1960s New Thing.
If there was any doubt before this, As the Sea proves definitively that everyone on this recording is a total bad-ass on their instruments.
Album personnel: Samuel Blaser (trombone), Marc Ducret (guitar), Bänz Oester (double bass), and Gerald Cleaver (drums).
