Bruno R: Presence
"Procession," in 11/4, is counted 3+3+3+2. The bassist hypnotizes with a Mingus-like riff while tenor saxophone and drums add melody over stronger emphasis. The meter creates an effect as if the processional were being abbreviated. So that pomp and circumstance can cut corners gracefully, the visualized participants are taking one short step for every three slow ones.
Highly recommended, Bruno Råberg’s latest project combines avant-garde unpredictability with down-home charm for a respectable jazz outing.
