"Last Exit is essentially a free jazz supergroup, and they cricumvent the usual free jazz noodling by virtue of a novel concept- cohesion achieved by simply playing the most agressive, "balls out" sounds achieveable.
This album is similar to the previously available "Koln" cd, but since this disc was recorded in the studio the mix is quite a bit clearer. Prepare to be astounded by the reletless, multidirectional drumming of Jackson. Laswell's bass playing will make you think Les Claypool should be paying him royalties. And Sharrock + Brontzmann = a two headed fire breathing dragon. They go off.
It's a bit unfair to describe this as straight "free" electric jazz, as the bass and drums are mostly locked in- yet in a nontraditional manner and without repetition. I figure this is a modern analogue to what Coltrane was trying to achieve in the year or two prior to his untimely death. A great modern electric jazz cd."
