WARREN WALKER TRIO
Warren Walker wields his musical power in a welcoming way. Their 3rd album (and 2nd for Cuneiform Records) isn´t form-eschewing free jazz, nor are the tonalities the trio employs particularly "out." The real revelation and revolution comes simply in the way saxophonist Warren Walker, bassist Gael Petrina, and drummer Caleb Dolister organize sound.
The Paris-and-New York-based trio is a purist´s nightmare -- and not only that of a jazz purist either. Since their first, self-titled album came out in 2010, The Kandinsky Effect has been boldly blending jazz with elements of everything from hip-hop to electronic music, making for an idiosyncratic amalgam that never goes exactly where you might expect it to.
