‘Attias Quintet Twines of Colesion CD Release’

by

They’re not twines, exactly, but long, thick ropes that bind the bandleader’s sax with that of Tony Malaby. The pair circle and swoop through each other, knotting things when things need knotting, and loosening things when the binds get too tight. Their new Clean Feed disc is a series of tension and release strategies, and their piano-bass-drums squad assures that those knots are anything but the square kind.
