"Close Fit -- There couldn't have been a better title for this fantastic improv CD! You'll have to be a fan of improvised jazz, I s'pose, 'coz "smooth jazz" listening style ain't gonna' cut it here! This is the best recording I've ever heard of Wright's work - & believe you me, I've heard a LOT of his music(s). Th' new element (for my ears, anyway) is Sondy's bass & electronic work... just superb in creating that "fit" alluded to in th' title. That's not (in the least) to disparage the percussion work by Strombeck, which is precise & exciting all 'round. & then, there's JACK, people... whoever recorded this grand outing captured th' sonics as well as th' spirit of freedom that Wright's playing (on both reeds and keyboards) conveys most clearly. Lots of lil' bells, clanking things & subtle electronic scratching keeps your ears on edge, but it is really the (almost psychic) radar of the players that will make this an improv collector's gem! A definite keeper that gets our MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, as well as the "PICK" of this issue for "best electro-improv of 2003"! --IMPROVIJAZZATION NATION
