Quartet

The driest, most uncompromising version of the ESP free-jazz sound you can get. Logan takes no prisoners on saxophone or any of his other instruments, his lack of refinement having the disconcerting effect of removing many of the usual barriers between player and listener, Milford Graves is so interesting on drums that you often find yourself trying (and usually failing) to focus on his part alone, while pianist Don Pullen and bassist Eddie Gomez fill in the chaos in-between. ‘Dance of Satan’ demonstrates perfectly the crumbling, acidic rawness that made this band so great, while ‘Teneous’ takes off with the kind of frenzied fury only this idiom of music can express; their sequel album More was almost as good. Not for the uninitiated.
