Overview

On a dozen concise sound explorations, altoist Steve Lehman utilizes sequences and electronic effects to produce otherworldly music. Two of the numbers are solos, seven are duets with drummer Tyshawn Sorey, and three are quintet pieces. The music primarily sets brooding moods, sometimes with rhythms, sometimes not. Few of the pieces are long enough to overstay their welcome (most end abruptly), but the overall effect is still mostly disturbing and episodic. Some listeners will find these explorations to be stimulants for thought, while others will consider them a bit of a bore since they do not include much development beyond the sounds.
