Attacking jazz structures with great passion and power while taking on Ives, Satie and Bacharach, this supergroup of sorts sports Veryan Weston, Luc Ex, Ingrid Laubrock, Tony Buck, &c. - incredible!


SOL6 (Red Note)
Label: Red Note    
Released in: Netherlands    

"[...] Sol6 isn't a Laubrock-as-leader album-she's one of six musicians in an international line-up led by pianist Veryan Weston, a veteran explorer of the outer limits with a well documented career on the British label Emanem, and bassist Luc Ex. But any new disc featuring Laubrock, whose prodigious talent is of a scale which only rarely comes along, and who remains woefully under-recorded, is to a large extent a Laubrock event.


The music is restless and inquisitive and moves between astringent lyricism and fractured high-voltage grooves, making few concessions to norms, particularly those applying to chamber music. "And The World Might B Flat After All," "Autistic African Samba" and "Insecurity" are rowdy, dangerous and beat-centric. In an atypical example of the retro-modern, the slow burning "Nodd" resonates with the astral jazz of saxophonists John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders as it emerged in the mid-1960s. The Erik Satie-derived "Chanson Hollandaise" and Bacharach's "Close To You" (a vocal vignette for Drummond which is read deliciously straight) provide more emollient moments.
