The Industrial Jazz Group: Hardcore
As for Hardcore, the music is too open-ended and playful to fit this category as well. On the creative side of traditional straight-ahead swinging jazz, both the arrangements and the improvised solos display a refreshing level of innovation. Certainly not ground-breaking or monumental, the sounds on this disc nevertheless offer something special to the curious and open-minded listener. Hardcore deserves a listen and reveals depth upon close examination.
