sample the album:
"A barbarous, tangled offering from this acoustic wind/strings trio. This group shares ties in New England, specifically the Conservatory: Morris is a faculty member of the program that Taylor and Sierakowski recently graduated from.
Joe Morris is a name that will not be unfamiliar to those who pay attention to goings on in the worlds of free jazz and improvisation. His work as both a guitarist and a bassist, with a veritable who's who of the international improvising community, has been widely documented on recordings for labels such as Aum Fidelity, Clean Feed, and ESP Disk.
Taylor is currently located in Montreal, and has offered some compelling recordings thus far with the Nigel Taylor/Nick Neuberg duo, playing amplified trumpet and percussion, respectively, and Joint Raker, another duo where Taylor's trumpet is pitted against a wealth of guitar onslaughts.
The music on Part and Parcel is of the breathlessly galloping, sprinting, and careening variety. Morris, Sierakowski, and Taylor share an inclination (here, at least) towards tight, knotty and sentence-finishing styles of playing. The intense forward motion they manifest on this record is the result of impressive levels of technique and virtuoso listening. This is a fine outing: another notch in a long & fine career of quality output, and a gushing introduction to two welcome new names."-Bug Incision
