Overview

Kip Hanrahan keeps assembling eclectic casts and creating unpredictable, unclassifiable sessions. No lead singer is identified, but it sure sounds like bassist Jack Bruce stepped forward to the microphone for a series of half-sung, half-spoken performances. They're a decidedly mixed bag, but the music is strong throughout. The cast includes pianist Don Pullen, Bruce, percussionist Andy Gonzalez, drummer Ralph Peterson and many other jazz and pop luminaries. Whether they're doing intense Afro-Latin, chaotic free jazz or rock-flavored material, what's happening underneath the vocals demands attention. There are enough intriguing moments on this disc to make it worth repeated listenings, if only to try and figure out just what Hanrahan's doing.
