Brennan's an abstract expressionist
with chops. He's utterly coherent in his free associative improvisations,
and he imbues his music with a great deal of timbral and rhythmic variety.
His compositions are fresh and quite original. Patrick Brennan's a first
class saxophonist and composer, and his trio is one of the most interesting
I've heard in some
striking about the album is how tight it is, with a stop-start writing
style that pushes it along from fragment to clearly defined fragment.
All this without losing improvisatory grace.
The tracks are mostly brief, pungent
and slightly inconsequentiaL There isn’t a piece here that really
grabs the attention, and yet cumulatively this is a rather effective
record that asks to be heard again..
