Laswell would be proud
While this very successful fusion of dub and european avant-jazz revisits a lot of the territory that Bill Laswell has mapped out with projects such as Material and Arcana, it also has an immediacy that Laswell's projects generally don't. Wobble's deep grooves are a lot more rigid than the rhythms Parker usually works with but the saxophonists finds plenty to express within those limits. The exhilarating final track is probably as close to pure funk as anything Parker has ever played on. It makes a very satisfying conclusion to a rewarding album.
