Black, Jim/Alas No Axis - Dogs of Great Indifference
This is the fourth and latest album, as of this writing, from 2006, from the greatly in-demand NYC drummer Jim Black's great, oddball mashup group Alas No Axis who combine the spaciousness of post-rock with jazz. A great cast too: Jim Black-drums, Hilmar Jensson-electric guitar, Skuli Sverrisson-electric bass and Chris Speed-tenor sax and clarinet. No real skull-shattering changes to their unique sound; just another really good album! Rock AND jazz purists need not apply, but it's good to go for anyone else!
