Quite a meaty one this, after a long intro that points to a free improv direction, instead there is a handsome jazz rock-like theme and then a return to a more experimental approach that simmers engagingly. You can pack a lot into 12 minutes – and thankfully so.
Sun Of Goldfinger is pretty epic to watch out for to be released in early-March... the latest from David Torn, Tim Berne and Ches Smith.
An open ended deep listen coated in electric guitar and electronics and that tart, sensuous alto sax input of Tim Berne’s and inspired drumming of Smith’s, you won’t have heard anything as absorbing as this in a very, very long while. Craig Taborn and a string section and additional guitars also feature on the track titled ‘Spartan, Before It Hit.’
