Badland: The Society Of The Spectacle (2006)
Featuring variable shifts in tempo along with delicate fabrics of sound, this music remains unpredictable and at times mysterious. More often than not, the players soar skywardwith a vengeance. And they raise a bit of hell on "The Society of the Spectacle (Part 1) and "Mia, where Noble's rumbling rhythms underscore the trio's penchant for wreaking havoc on conventional jazz standards. The musicians' intuitive camaraderie is evident throughout. There's a divergent scope to the entire session, which firms up the sustentative elements of this first-rate outing.
