Ralph Alessi & Modular Theatre
A bit of verse, lots of nimble extrapolation, written elements that conjure everything from Ra to rumbathe trumpeter has myriad approaches on his new record, and a mix of èlan and energy brings some singularity to the table. The poetry can seem secondary; its the deep rapport of the foursome that keeps heads spinning. This stage version of the band boasts Loren Stillman up front with Alessi, and something tells me theyll be passing the ball around real quick.
