Open Loose


Marty Ehrlich has a gorgeous record entitledPliant Plaint, and that title could be used to describe the elasticity at the core of Open Loose’s bend-n-stretch trio dynamics. On the new Explicit, things seem more lyrical than ever: The bass/drums/tenor set-up is geared to stress rolling waves of sound as much alongside churning interaction. When Mark Helias, Tom Rainey and Tony Malaby connect, there’s a lot of authority in the air.
