Chris Greco Trio: Pleiadian Call
Multiple reedman Chris Greco has put together a near suite on Pleiadian Call : loose, fluid, sometimes haunting compositions that seems to fit together like the pieces of an aural jigsaw puzzle, with a sound similar to fellow reedman Marty Ehrlich's.

The trio format allows for a lot of space, and bassist Chris Colangelo and drummer Kendall Kay know when to lay out, and when to lean in.

Greco's switching between the reeds—soprano, alto and tenor sax, flute and clarinet—keeps the sound interesting sometimes a cool breeze, some times a bubbling simmer. His tenor work is especially nice, with an airy tone that you don't often hear.

The experiece of the CD is one of listening to ancient sounds of wordless truth. A great late night listen with the lights doused, starshine glinting through the window.
