Marty Ehrlich & Ray Anderson Quartet


They’ve got a scalding little number entitled “Hot Crab Pot” that epitomizes freebop. Indeed, lots of last year’s Hear You Say illustrates how sputters and swirls can be central to otherwise rigorous designs. Their old boss Anthony Braxton floats in the music somewhere, but trombonist Anderson and saxophonist Ehrlich have been expert at such moves for a long time. Drummer Matt Wilson will make everything glide.
