The free jazz quartet Exuberance definitely lives up to its name. Their music is often ecstatic as tenor-saxophonist Louis Belogenis and trumpeter Roy Campbell frequently scream together. This live set features four numbers but each piece, particularly the two lengthy ones, are episodic and do not necessarily end where they began. There are some thoughtful and quiet sections but the parts that are most memorable are when the group is at its most relentless. Drummer Michael Wimberly sings and chants a little during the first part of “Invocation” and there is a bit of Roy Campbell’s flute. However the main hero throughout is Belogenis, whose intense tenor, while sometimes recalling Albert Ayler, sounds quite original and full of fire. – Scott Yanowmore »
