Scott Rosenberg: V: Solo Improvisations
The tunes on Solo Improvisations come with titles consisting of massive diphthongs. These agrammatical descriptions convey, in a general sense, Rosenberg's purposeful pursuit of the sounds outside the usual vocabulary of the saxophonist. This disc is so intimately personal that the listener is extremely taxed to build any kind of greater meaning out of the noises within. As an encyclopedic demonstration of the incredible range of expression possible on the clarinet, flute, and saxophone, Solo Improvisations is a high-flying success. However, it's also incredibly hard to understand how these sounds connect. Perhaps that's not the point.
