Ivo Perelman: The Ventriloquist (2003)
It’s all about free jazz, with noticeable elements of structure and linear frameworks amid moments of Albert Ayler-type intensity, witnessed on “Meliphobia,” for example. On “Place des Vosgas,” the soloists engage in cat-and-mouse dialogue,amid gobs of synergistic adventures and circular motifs. Through it all, Perelman and Sclavis get the job done in vigorous fashion. The woodwind specialists’ complementing styles fuse—or perhaps channel—the energies of the rhythm section’s whirling flows and meticulously shaped designs. Easily one of Perelman’s finest outings to date! Irrefutably recommended...
