Out Trios Volume One: Monsoon Review

Atavistic's fled­gl­ing Out Trios series places together musicians in a
context where they will hopefully create something vibrant and new on the spot
while the tape is running. Sometimes it works, as it does here in the series'
first installment with William Hooker, Lee Ranaldo, and Roger Miller, and
sometimes, as in Out Trios, Vol. 2 with Jeff Parker, Michael Zerang, and Kevin
Drumm, it doesn't. Monsoon is one continuous piece of music, nearly 50 minutes
in length, with a scope and breadth that offer listeners a bird's eye view of
the process of aesthetic creation where all of the best elements of free
improvisation can be heard: imagination, inspiration, control, and respect for
one's collabo­rator­s. Hooker is clearly the leader of this ensemble and is
driven by his fiercely articulate rhythmic palette. His exoticism comes from
within and is easily embodied and emboldened by Ranaldo on guitar and Miller on
bass and electronics. “Monsoon” is a labyrinthine work that begins with flow
and assimilation and then becomes a free-falling structure of dynamics, texture,
color, and uncanny perception and communication between the principals. This
music is loaded with emotion; it exists outside the formal constraints of
detached theory and paints the landscape with images that are not easily
defined, but are readily experienced
