5 stars The double wild battery Of Joe Baron and Kenny Wollesen with the percussions of Cyro Baptista on a background of broken glasses, the distorsions of the guitar of a gigantic Marc Ribot, the Rhodes of Jamie Saft they introduce the entrance in scene of the contralto of Zorn, in one of the fiercest, hypnotic and impressive attacks of the history of the jazz rock and free music. An alone equal devastating impact to the entrance in scene of Michael Henderson's bass in the most famous attack of oN the corner in the same disk of Miles davis. The 50 birthday of the saxofonista is so celebrated with an album of rare musical power, with the sax of Zorn as a gone crazy bird, free on a dreadful rhythmic section for aggressiveness and precision. You break down post industrial, jewish-arab atmospheres , calls to the tradition jazz rock of the years 60 70(Davis, Mahavishnu), the all played with an expressive power difficult to find in other albums of this discussed author. After the beginning with Tekufah and Iadalh Abal the disk develops him with more classical dynamics of the jazz rock tradition, damping the initial ferocity The lower part of Trevor Dunn it also suits very well him for inevitable calls metal, in a rhythmic wealth that I remember only in its collaboration with Patton and dave Lombardo of the Slayer. A non easy disk to a first listening, to feel and to hear again, to tall volume and and with a simple shrewdness: it is not proper for the ears of your wives or girlfriends, assure to be you alone in the house....
