COLTER FRAZIER/ROB WALLACE - Colter Frazier/Rob Wallace Duo (pfMentum 048; USA) Featuring Colter Frazier on tenor sax and Rob Wallace on percussion. This is yet another disc from pfMentum featuring musicians I am not yet familiar with. This is an acoustic duo recording and it begins with a warm, laid back intro called "Prelude" for simmering tenor sax and spacious drums & cymbals. The mallets-on-drums build to a near frenzy midway, while the tenor plays with warmth and clarity. "The Creek" flows freely yet is most somber, organic and quietly haunting. There is a strong balance and an organic flow that goes back and forth between these two gifted players. "Ballad" is especially lovely, lyrical and softly soulful. I dig how there is an almost hidden melody at the center of "TGC," one that you could hum along to if you were so inclined. I also like that this duo doesn't feel the need to scream and bathe in the ghost of "free jazz". They are still able to make magic music and communicate freedom, subtly and with a sympathetic connection to the inner spirits.
