'Undead Jazz Presents Orchestre National de Jazz & Daniel Yvinec+John Hollenbeck's Large Ensemble'
Somewhere in the middle of the new Shut Up And Dance, it becomes clear that this French tentet can go anywhere and do anything. Industrial gurgles, prog-prov geometry, dreamy drones--they're all essayed with the kind of precision that wrings emotion out of the performances. The Orchestre's disc features Hollenbeck tunes, and the percussionist/composer's own big band (tonight with vocalists Theo Bleckman and Kate McGarry) works on a similarly eloquent level. This sharp double bill is a great chance to climb into Hollenbeck's head.
