Chicago/Brazil cornetist Rob Mazurek's project of intense and downright destructive jazz with an electronic edge from a great set of players.

"Mandarin Movie often recalls Bitches Brew-era Miles Davis in the way it subsumes individual voices into a murky sonic bog, but those looking for fusion jams will be sorely disappointed and probably a little bit disturbed. "Orange" perverts Isotope's clinical jazz-funk, with Mazurek's and trombonist Steve Swell's horns holding long, dissonant chords that underpin the rest of the band's inky groove (computer-manipulated by Wilco's Mikael Jorgensen). Swell, experimental guitarist Alan Licht and free-jazz drummer Frank Rosaly fight to be heard over a howling wind of electronics and distortion on "Black Goat (Part One)." In the thirteen-minute closing track, "The Highest Building in the World," the noise wins."
