Cosmologic
Eyes in the Back of My Head
Cuneiform Records

Free-jazz upstarts from San Diego strike a balance between complex form and forceful abandon on their fourth outing. The provocative quartet is propelled by the intuitive hookup between drummer Nathan Hubbard and bassist Scott Walton while trombonist Michael Dessen and tenor saxophonist Jason Robinson, a potent improviser who occasionally steps into the Albert Ayler zone, alternately blend on sublime harmonies and freelance above the fray. Thoughtful writing and bold instincts make this a compelling listen.
