Paul Scea
Contemporary Residents
Blujazz

Multi-instrumentalist Scea piles on the electronics in this sextet session, running saxophones and trumpet through effects boxes, augmenting melodies with wind and guitar synthesizers, and generally warping expectations. At times strongly reminiscent of later-period Miles Davis, the nine compositions on this album are rhythmically intriguing, with overlapped or hybrid meters and touches of South American rhythm, while tweaked harmonics and reptilian basslines parry with harsh, taunting horns.
