"Jan 18" by Steve Coleman

"Jan 18" by Steve Coleman

From the album

The Mancy of Sound (Pi Recordings) by Steve Coleman

Editor's Comments

Song begins with an explosion, parts flying everywhere. But instead of becoming more scattered, the song's elements come together. Sax and voices are the propulsion that drives this ferocious tune. I don't know if it's that my ear is getting attuned to Coleman's compositions, but I hesitate to call this avant-garde, though for the casual jazz listener, the description would be apt. Lots going on here, and with each subsequent listen, I'm finding more to like.
