Love the way the tenor saxophonist steadily recalibrates his blare, enhancing its attack in a rich spectrum of squall and wail, moan and sigh. The advanced articulation is unmistakable on The Hour of the Star, a quartet date with enough verve and turbulence to reveal the music's particulars. The rhythm section of Joe Morris, Matt Shipp, and Gerald Cleaver gives Perelman plenty of taut interplay to rampage over. Drummer Luther Grey takes over for Cleaver tonight.
