Dig my man, a-wailin’ sax! San Francisco Bay Area improviser Jim Ryan seeks the jazz-avant Grail, and finds it, too. The grail in this case is late-period John Coltrane Live In Seattle and the out-sax Franks, Wright and Lowe - all-out, let-it-roar-from-the-depths-of-the-collective-unconscious barrage of passionate skronk. While there’s no denying the urgency and commitment of the players, there’s a definite déjà vu about The Concept - it recalls the free jazz blow-outs I’ve heard 5, 10 and even 20 years ago - another problem is it’s all "release" and precious little "tension." It’s virtually non-stop, madly cathartic, rarely subtle blowing that rarely touches ground in the usual jazz theme/solo/theme sense. Still, if you, a hardcore, extreme "out" music fan - the kind that thinks Albert Ayler is mellow easy listening - need some folks to rail "free" at the universe for/with you, Ryan’s Forward Energy have got the arsenal.
