O’s Notes: Drummer, producer leads a trio with Scott Robinson (sax) and Julian F. Thayer on bass. they each contribute to the seven originals that are both racy and seductive avant-garde tunes. We preferred the more relaxed “Yana” with Julian stressing harmonics and Scott breathing lightly through his horns. But whether Scott is screaming on his sax on “Bucky Fuller’s Bop” or Klaus is demonstrating a the breadth of sounds from his percussive collection on “Candelabra” it is clear that each of these musicians has an abundance of talent. Some may find it misguided in this free jazz format but then again, that is why it is titled free jazz! Creative juices abound.
