Earprint (2 stars)
By Derek Ansell (Jazz Journal, January 2017)
This pianoless quartet seem to be offering a 21st take on the Ornette Coleman method of free jazz with slightly different instrumentation. Palmedo seems to have a very good rapport with Sun, mostly on tenor sax, although he does play clarinet on two compositions. All the tracks have free-flowing, improvised lines with strong, almost equal importance given to the bass and drums. Palmedo also uses an ocean drum on one track. With tracks like The Holy Quiet and The Golden Girder Strikes Again, it is all somewhat esoteric and tongue in cheek. All the musicians merge well together on each selection and there is an attractive, spontaneous feel to most pieces. Good fun, if you like this sort of thing.
