Andy Laster's Hydra - Polyogue (CD)
Release Date: 09/11/95
Hydra stomps and steals its way through Laster's rhythmically complex, memorably quirky compositions. Balancing notated episodes against structured improvisational interplay, Hydra's music touches many bases, from intricate counterpoint to carnivalesque cacophony. The spirit of Mingus, Ornette, and the free jazz pioneers rubs shoulders with Ockeghem, Schubert, and the Jewish cantorial tradition.
