After a decade of intensive, near-telepathic interplay and wide ranging expressive armory, on this live recording from 1991 at Art Court in Canada, “Flaherty’s alto warbles like an Evan Parker, preaches like an Ayler, or croons like a subdued Sanders, while Colbourne remains … sensitive and creative.”

“Quartet performance from 1989 (released 2001) with some really beautiful high-powered ache from Flaherty,” describes our friends at Volcanic Tongue, “Working almost Ornette-ish flights of blue spirit into the path of bassist Downs and drummer Colbourne. Guitarist Froc ... plays with a fairly clean tone and comes from relatively deep within the jazz guitar tradition but he rarely distracts from the flow of ideas making their way around Flaherty’s hot-wired brain.”

“Almost big-band scale free-jazz conceptions,” concludes Volcanic Tongue, “From a sextet led by these legendary drums/sax shooters and featuring James ‘Chumly' Hunt on trumpet and plastic castanets, Matt Moran on vibes and percussion, Mike Murray on guitar and long-term collaborator Richard Downs on bass. A pretty singular installment in this on-going saga, with the music existing in some kind of flux between all-valves-exploding high-energy gush and slightly more elaborately conceived big band geometries. A beauty, for sure."

Classic thunderous now-fi recording of this killing unit,” according to Volcanic Tongue, “Scything their way through mountains of hidebound mediocrity with huge gulps of liberated human spirit. From 1994, this one also features Richard Downs on baritone horn and bass and Mike Murray on guitar. Massive.”
