Sharp is known for his Downtown New York noise bona fides, but here he presents himself in a recognizable jazz context. The album is a testament to the leader's stylistic and instrumental versatility -- with Sharp even ditching his celebrated guitar skills in favor of tenor and soprano sax blowing on many of these tracks. (Though, bless his heart, he can't resist flashing his fretboard-tapping heroics on "The Grip," and good for him.) Drummer Ches Smith also swings harder than he has on other projects. The album's momentum slows toward the end, but the whole thing is alive with risk-taking.
