Sound Hierarchy

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
If Sound Hiearchy leaves you feeling like you've just consumed ten cups of extra-strong coffee, it's because of the element of density. While Roscoe Mitchell and his many admirers in the AACM have made extensive use of space when exploring "the outside" an approach that is equally interesting, but not as jolting, this outstanding CD is just the opposite.

The Sao Paulo native thrives on density, and he uses it to such an extent on Sound Hiearchy that the listener doesn't get a chance to catch his/her breath.
