The Radius of the Mind
On "Spacesubwaysuite, Warner's alto reacts in stops and starts as Parker darts in and out of compositional spaces; Anderson's drums shadow the two leads to form a pure three-way improvisation. The trio mixes things up a bit as Warner sits out for "Crankshaft and Parker and Anderson run through different tempos and touches on "Taste, a duet for alto and drums, featuring Warner's declamatory style and generating majestic results.
These players have selected their influences carefully: Coltrane, naturally; the splintered melody in homage to the master on "Just Like Monk ; and the Cecil-esque runs up and down the keys on "Smiling Forehead (the name of drummer Hamid Drake's publishing company). Good guides to have, and while Anderson and Parker have the chops and the sensibility to deliver rhythmic diversity, musical energy, and melodic creativity, Warner is the one whose life in music supplies the glue that bonds the three together.
