Billy Bang is the big attraction here. Bang has been one of very few skronky
violinists associated with forward-thinking jazz. His own records have been hit
and miss affairs, such as the Vietnam project of last year, which got great
press but was disappointingly restrained. Fortunately, Scrapbook is one of his
career high points. He's well matched with William Parker and Hamid Drake, who
are locked into a fierce out-groove mode. This disc starts intriguingly with
the three cooking up a theme that's played as if looped by a sampler. Some
decent free exploration with a very bluesy edge ensues, wherein Parker seems to
channel Charlie Haden. The middle three tunes "Singing Spirits,” "Dust on a
White Shirt" and "Urban" are great showcases for some frenzied, multi-phonic
fiddlin'. Bang's way with avant-country string scraping really comes to the
fore in this trio of tunes. Going way beyond country, Bang finds great new
harmonic routes in simple themes while Parker and Drake cook up grooves that
haven't sounded so convincing since Piercing the Veil a couple of years
back. The disc is judiciously kept around 50 minutes, another 20 might have
been too much. This is one of Thirsty Ear's best releases so far this year.
