Action, man.Action Jazz isnít a patch on seeing The Thing live, but then if you could capture the power this Scandinavian jazz trio have on-stage on a CD itíd probably get cordoned off by a bomb-disposal squad. In truth, when stripped of the sheer volume that is their most potent weapon, the slower moments on their fourth album do occasionally drag, but tracks like their cover of noise rockers Lightning Boltís Ride The Sky are still aggressive punk-jazz explosions that blow the likes of Acoustic Ladyland clean away.
The Thing - Action Jazz, released 20 August 07 on Smalltown Superjazz.
