Cosmically exciting live improvisation Lawrence Casserley Jeffrey Morgan – EXOPLANETS: If “life on the edge” is your forte, you’re going to love this superb live improvisation… I got the CD from my friend Jeffrey Morgan, who plays alto clarinet/saxophone, and even piano on two tracks, against very intriguing electronics by Lawrence. Those readers who have followed me since my earliest IMPROVIJAZZATION NATION magazine days know that Jeffery and I have been pals since way back in the ’80’s, when I first arrived in the Magickland of Olywa, and will easily understand why I’m such a fan of his when they listen to the 9:31 “55 Cancri b – Galileo“… this one will take you through the wormholes, to other galaxies and BACK again, folks… and, I just LOVED Jeffrey’s keyboard work on the piece!
You’ll want to turn the volume up HIGH on the opener, “42 Draconis b – Orbitar“, so you can hear all the intricate electronic marvels that Lawrence realizes… both players show total mastery of their tools… if any improvised works should be considered for awards, this one should be right at the top of the stack.
It was quite easy to pick my personal favorite of the six (long) improvisations offered up for your aural pleasure… Jeffrey leads in with full-bodied piano on the closer, “55 Cancri e – Janssen“, with Lawrence’s electronic wizardry morphing in rapidly to create a 13:56 gem that will hold you spellbound… GREAT improv!
I give Lawrence and Jeffrey a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this most intriguing set of works. Get more information on Lawrence’s site, or Jeffrey’s pages. Rotcod Zzaj
