Wright, Jack : Thaw (Spring Garden Music)

Label: Spring Garden Music    
Released in: USA    


"The sort of radical improvisation practiced by Jack Wright is unburdened by preconception, but not by experience. Though each track is spontaneously produced, it is nonetheless the product of considerable discipline and training. All 12 of these remarkable improvisations reflect a different side of Wright, from the reflective to the ecstatic, ranking with the best of his work. There are several collections of musicians represented: The album consists of two solos by Wright, one on soprano sax and one on alto; six trio tracks, with two separate groups, featuring Wright's alternating horns; a sextet; and a lengthy duo between Wright and trombonist Stan Nishamura. Throughout, there are numerous sounds of surprise, with the saxophonist's jabbing lines and spurting cascades of notes the central attraction. What makes this recording so interesting is not only the extraordinary musicianship, but the diversity. There is even a touch of humor on "Sextet (With As)," where distorted voices,flute, and little sounds roll in a melange of cacophony. Surprisingly perhaps, the saxophonist eschews extended technique, instead focusing on a well-toned jazz-infused style that reaches back to early Ornette Coleman. Wright rarely repeats himself, and he consciously avoids licks. There is an unusual amount of lyrical content for this sort of music. You might call it free improv -- with a heart."-Steve Loewy
