Joe and the Meanderthals: Open The Gate And Flood The Valley

Read "Open The Gate And Flood The Valley" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Reedman Joe Albano makes quite an impact with a debut recording where improvised music is seasoned with rock, heavy metal, classical music and jazz. The mix could have been intemperate, but Albano fertilizes it with his sense of invention and forward movement. The result is energetic and imaginative, with a touch of whimsy for added measure.
