Platform One

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Fran├žois Couture
Soon after releasing a convincing one-time collaboration with sax great Elton Dean, the Wrong Object are back with another rather high-profile (and short-lived) collaboration. On board this time are two key figures of British creative jazz: trumpeter Harry Beckett and trombonist Annie Whitehead. The Belgian group exchanged MP3 files and charts with them, everyone rehearsing in their respective time and place, meeting only for two concerts on Belgian soil, both recorded and edited into Platform One.

Soon after releasing a convincing one-time collaboration with sax great Elton Dean, the Wrong Object are back with another rather high-profile (and short-lived) collaboration. On board this time are two key figures of British creative jazz: trumpeter Harry Beckett and trombonist Annie Whitehead. The Belgian group exchanged MP3 files and charts with them, everyone rehearsing in their respective time and place, meeting only for two concerts on Belgian soil, both recorded and edited into Platform One. The compatibility between the forces present is very high, especially between the Wrong Object and Whitehead, who share a fondness for groove and lighthearted yet intelligent heads. The set list consists of a hodgepodge of Wrong Object originals, compositions from both guests, and two Frank Zappa covers. For many a listener, these will be the standout tracks, if only because they are more familiar, although the quality of these readings of "Big Swifty" and "Filthy Habits" do warrant a "highlight" sticker on each. "Filthy Habits," in particular, is delightfully bad-tempered and menacing, thanks in part to Beckett's solo. The album also features two pieces by Wrong Object guitarist Michel Delville: the Zappa-esque "Wet Weather Wet" and the klezmer-tinged "Honeypump Riff," both propelled by catchy yet angular heads. Whitehead contributes "Platform 1" and "This Affects That," the latter providing an excellent vehicle for the group's tight playing and whimsical demeanor. From Beckett's repertoire, the group delivers "Tinseltown" (rather bland) and "Scarlet Mine" (much better, thanks to a stellar solo from Whitehead). The final 12-minute jam "Hello Max" is way too long for its own good, despite some good-hearted fun going on as musicians trade solos, but everything that precedes that last track is very strong -- and a better representation of what the Wrong Object are about than the Elton Dean disc.
