Track review of "Zed Leppelin Crash Test"

Zed Trio: Lost Transitions Zed Trio abides by an excitable, free-form line of attack, engulfed in hazardous routes and hardcore experimentalism, while zooming in for the kill. With downward spirals and a cavalcade of soaring forays, they impart nuance and chatty dialogues into the plot. It's a perpetual renewal process on Lost Transitions.

On "Zed Leppelin Crash Test," the trio constructs an avant-garde spin on Led Zeppelin's hard-rock aura, and take matters to unequivocal abstractness. Guitarist David Lataillade tenders an edgy underpinning via his steely chord movements and distortion laden phrasings, serving as a fractured arena for his band-mates' climactic statements. Essentially, the band spawns a molecular view of Zeppelin's mien.

Zed Trio projects the intensity that equates to pulling hairs and grinding teeth. Yet one of the differentiators from similar avant units relates to the trio's pronouncement of a highly-entertaining outlook. Thus, the artists are not content to embark upon an overly austere framework. It's an action-packed and curiously interesting album, indeed.

Personnel: Heddy Boubaker: alto and bass saxophones; David Lataillade: electric guitar; Frederic Vaudaux: drums, percussion.

Year Released: 2010 | Record Label: Ayler Records
