Lauren Newton - Joelle Leandre - Urs Leimgruber: Out Of Sound
This estimable trio featuring, bassist, Joelle Leandre (France), saxophonist, Urs Leimgruber (Switzerland) and vocalist, Lauren Newton (USA) explore various harmonic ranges, amid densely formulated motifs on this 2002 release. With an average track length of three and one-half minutes, the artists frame many of their themes upon sleep-related events via song titles such as, “Sleeptalk,” and “The Insomniacs.” Therefore, the band sets the table for a series of abstract soundscapes, marked by Leimgruber’s squeaks, pops, micro themes, Newton’s wordless vocalise and Leandre’s often imaginative means of spinning a pulse.

Ms. Leandre’s nimble-fingered articulations serve as the bond throughout this production, while Leimgruber and Newton often establish a guiding light, thanks to their insightful exchanges and comparable tonalities. Notions of subconscious phenomena are brought to fruition via Leandre’s hallowed arco bass passages, and Newton’s whispery murmurs on “I Think...”. While Leimgruber’s gravelly tenor sax lines spur a frenetic and restless pace during the appropriately titled, “The Insomniacs.” Here, the trio’s complex inclinations, complement their ease of execution for a production brimming with distorted realism and lucidly enacted metaphors! Recommended.
