Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Third Altered States trio live release, this time with guest sax player Ned Rothenberg . His collaboration on this concert/recordings changed trio's music radically - instead of fast technical brutal heavy avant rock dominated music there is free jazz.

Whole album is just recorded improvs, but sax is openly soloing instrument there, and it brings its own rules. Even if common atmosphere there is still quite dark and noisy in moments, music by its structure and even sound is modern free jazz. All instruments participates in sax improvs (possibly drummer is less busy than usual there). Compositions are very free form, with all possible components of avant jazz - complex, crazy, scratchy, so this album is far from accessible music. You will need repetitive listening just to got this release in all, and even that doesn't mean you will be very familiar with what happens there.

Addition of soloing sax to brutal Altered States music is really attractive move; free jazz music played by avant rock musicians doesn't become easier listening though.
