    Thank you for a thoughtful and erudite review. The music is certainly arresting; the whole album has an unusual sound to it, like it's coming from a different perspective. I didn't know about Strudel's classical side, that certainly explains a lot of the strange appeal of the music. Unknown names to me, but stunning technique- the polytonal blowing, the unbelievable mouthpiece control sounding like a bebop trumpet, the vaguely unsettling landscape, all contribute to a very satisfying listen.
