For days when Jazz doesn't give a Flux, dispense with the bassline, make the core shakey but topple free, keep it spinning until the audience leaves, which may be pretty soon. Then half way through....just tip it up and flip it over, giddy dudes.
"Tilted" is from Canadian saxophonist Quinsin Nachoff's groundbreaking new recording, "Flux" with David Binney, Matt Mitchell, and Kenny Wollesen. The bassless ensemble of two saxophones, piano, and drums plays original compositions by Nachoff. "Flux" explores the space between modern jazz and contemporary classical, masterfully creating jazz chamber pieces that veer into mind-blowing auditory explorations while still holding their center.
