Erik Lawrence & Hipmotism

Stomping gleefully over New Orleans standards and creeping into the dark corners of Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” this freewheeling foursome serves up a loose amalgam of raucous merrymaking, slow, stately marches and haunted paranoia. Lawrence’s croaking percolation on baritone sax leads the way for sly solos from Steven Bernstein on slide and valve trumpets. Rene Hart’s acoustic bass picks up a sinister edge thanks to some effects boxes, while drummer Allison Miller bangs and shuffles with equal bravado.
