Alberto Pinton Quintet: Motionemotion (2005)
Pinton, trombonist Mats Aleklint and the others generally launch an attack that is akin to an armed militia positioning for battle. On "Lallah the quintet pursues a jazz-boogaloo motif, subsequently bursting into a punishing swing vamp. Then on "Big Mondo, the musicians execute a rambunctious escapade into the free zone via raw power founded upon tension and angst. They work rather nicely on the inside, as well as when they soar into the avant garde. Sure, the improvisational element is an important cog in the wheel for these players, yet they also integrate various contours and angles into their grand scheme. Ultimately Pinton is a force to be reckoned with!
