Roscoe Mitchell - Conversations I (2014)

On this congregation of colors and sounds -- "Conversations I" -- old-time jazz improviser Roscoe Mitchell, accompanied by Craig Taborn and Kikanju Baku; respectively playing reeds/flute, piano/organ/synth, and drums/percussions; sketches insanity in magnitude. The songs are relentlessly arranged and performed, and the trio's collective musical consciousness as alive as it gets - thanks to Baku's intemperate backlashes to every single produced or un-produced note.
