Low Cost Space Flights by Chris Corsano / Paul Flaherty.
Bandcamp Link: Low Cost Space Flights
It has been a week of energy jazz. On Monday I saw two groups with local saxophone flamethrowers Tom Weeks and Josh Allen, listened to this album from Corsano and Flaherty this morning, tonight going to see Peter Brötzmann / Keiji Haino Duo.
The name of this album is completely descriptive of both Corsano and Flaherty’s take no prisoners approach to playing. From the first note to the last, this is playing as if your life depended on it.
Flaherty spends so much time in the upper register of his sax, smearing squeals across the milky way, that you might follow him into the stars. Corsano’s playing is so fast and furious, if you vibrate along, you might just reach launch velocity.
This is a great album. Energetic, abrasive, harsh, and beautiful, all at the same time. A new moment of insight with every breath.
