Album Review

"The most satisfying moments in this arresting meeting are the abstract ones. The first improvisation, "A Lesson Learned Part I—Creating Transformation," is a storm of distorted, industrial sounds, rooted by fat bass and psychedelic guitar lines that triggers Beger to add associative sax playing without enforcing any narrative. This violent, thick mix of raw sounds has a dramatic, often a disturbing impact. But this tension dissolves into a schizophrenic interplay on "A Lesson Learned Part II—Lecture," where the dominant Beger dictates a structured improvisation and the trio opts for an accompanying role, adding a repetitive rhythmic pattern.
