Scott Tinkler Trio: Shrike Like

Glenn Astarita By

Sign in to view read count
Australian trumpeter Scott Tinkler extends concepts witnessed on his fine debut release for the “Buzz” label titled, The Sofa King. And with his follow up and self-produced effort, Shrike Like, the “Scott Tinkler Trio” continues to push the envelope as the band once again exhibits a renaissance spirit! Here, each musician demonstrates acute multitasking abilities in addition to handling the rhythmic and melodic chores.

On the title track, Tinkler’s fluent leads and witty employment of multiphonics bespeaks an expansive arsenal, as the trumpeter executes a hodgepodge of themes atop bassist Adam Armstrong and drummer Simon Barker’s abstract take on a standard Blues-Rock swagger. Throughout, the band handles difficult unison choruses with militaristic precision. - A characteristic that purveys depth and space amid the several thought-provoking episodes of group dialogue and improvisation.

With “Bloke Man”, the Trio engages in a crash and burn free jazz motif, accelerated by Tinkler’s crafty display of slurred 16th notes whereas they rework a Bop-ish swing into submission on the turbocharged piece, “Sharing A House With Walt”. Essentially, the musician’s embark on various interludes or journeys that might suggest a kaleidoscopic array of emotions and themes along with the band’s propensity for climactic opuses and disciplined patterns. Given the opportunity or increased exposure, the “Scott Tinkler Trio” would knock em’ dead on these shores. Hearing is believing!
