The British might call the new album by drummer Aaron Comess, Sculptures, a "curate's egg." It's instrumental music, so as likely to be filed under "jazz" as anywhere else, but the focus is not on linear improvisation over changes or, for that matter, free improvisation either. Rather, it's a collection of performances running from two to seven minutes based on tight harmonic kernels, with a strong emphasis on texture rather than melody. Comess drummed for the Spin Doctors and Joan Osbourne among other artists, and presumably those mid-nineties gigs left him with a war-chest to finance experimental projects like this.
