MILO FINE FREE JAZZ ENSEMBLE

Precision In Exactitude

(Lotus Sound) Used CD $6.00

This live duet from 1997 by Fine on drums, electronics, piano and clarinet, and Steve Gnitka on guitar, got a big thumbs down from Allmusic.com, which means one thing: scooping up this masterpiece in a heartbeat is the way to go. “This set … feels messy and sloppy and completely uninspired. Notes are played, and played, and played, and played some more…. This is noodling free jazz, without purpose or passion… Why this was released is a mystery.”
