More CRAM reviews just in...from across the pond!

Super review for CRAM disc TRANSIT CHECK by Benedict Taylor.

Hot off the press from Bruce Gallanter & Downtown Music Gallery:

Featuring Benedict Taylor on solo viola... Benedict has a unique sound as he twists notes on his viola in all sorts of bent ways...There is a tradition of free/jazz violin from Michael Sampson (who played with Albert Ayler), to Ornette Coleman to Leroy Jenkins and Billy Bang. Taylor sounds like he is drawing from that tradition while doing things his own way. He pushes hard and plays intensely with passion and finesse. His music is concentrated, consistently fascinating and at times extreme yet focused... This disc is an incredibly powerful effort and remains both enchanting and unsettling throughout. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG
