(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this on LP many years ago, already a fan of David Torn from "Planet X" and "Cloud About Mercury." I was not prepared for this kind of music. At the time, I couldn't haven't even categorized it as anything other than "noise." It's apparent to me now that these are drum/guitar "free-jazz" improvisations/compositions. It's great to hear a top-notch, creative electric guitarist approaching that genre, as they are few and far between (dey's lots of saxophonists doe, dat fo' sure!). Adventerous stuff, reminiscent (though I suppose it should be the other way around) of Pat Metheny's "Zero Tolerance for Silence." I suppose that covers much of free jazz too."
