Kretzmer, Yoni / Andrew Drury

Kretzmer, Yoni / Andrew Drury: Oranges (OutNow Recordings)

Label: OutNow Recordings    
Released in: USA    

"Kretzmer, the man behind the Out Now label, is the man out front on this release. With a tenor sax blaring echoes of Albert Ayler (check the title cut "Oranges"!) That's some high octane stuff, and drummer Drury is bowing or scraping or doing some funky junk percussion (one of his fortes apparently, he leads workshops in the fine art of found pounding). That goes through some absolutely harrowing stretches, like a piece of music being electrocuted (indeed Drury's presumably organic sounds almost sound like plugged in noise at times). But check out how beautifully they close that piece, with a softer almost spiritual pining. Wow! The pattern for this is release is odd longer numbers then short even sketches. Not for the duo to catch their breath, they could double disk you in a NY minute, but for the listener to pause and process. Okay, maybe also for Drury to play with some of his toys and objects. Chittering, whistling and bowed notes (percussion is the wrong word) that almost blur with the high end tweet and scree from Yoni. Of the longer piece, "Akushkash" starts sputtery and gets cycling while "Evocations" hovers off the ground for about 5 minutes before moving off the rolling toms and into more fiery sax arpeggios. And again, Oranges are sweet and in season. A well connecting duo on display here."-Thurston Hunger
