Trial And Error

Game Of Patience: Trial And Error (Herbal International)

Label: Herbal International    
Released in: Malaysia    

"We start in the left corner for some die-hard improvised music, courtesy of Game Of Patience, a trio of which I never heard before, but with Yong Yandsen on saxophone, Darren Moore on drums/ percussion and Brian O'Reilly on contrabass and electronics. Two pieces on this release, both named after the city or festival it was recorded. Let's hope the title is not how these men see their music or way of playing.

'Choppa', a festival in Signapore, is the first port of call and we hear a band who loves their free improvisation and free jazz in equal portions, and most of the time their instruments sound like the God intended them to sound; just very occasionally they slip into something that is different, towards the end for instance when they hit upon some controlled feedback. Otherwise they stay within the more safe boundaries of free improvised music, as we know it. And that's fine enough I think. They play with some fine controlled aggression and do an excellent job"-Frans De Waard, Vital Weekly
