O’s Notes: The liner notes define passion as an unstable molecule. They suggest that the author is more comfortable with death than confronting the realities of life. We were a bit confused by the message and the music mimicked that feeling to a certain extent. Guitarist Rik Wright leads Fundamental Forces, his quartet with James DeJoie (sax, cl, fl), Geoff Harper (b) and Greg Campbell (d, perc). Wright wrote all of the music and kept us guessing though we found solace in “Single Angularity”.
