Tenor sax/clarinetist Speed combines hyper beats and ambient textures with eastern-inspired melodies and rhythms to expand and derange the realm of NY's Downtown Jazz/New Music. With the same remarkable band as on his debut Yeah No (SGL 1517-2) - Cuong Vu (trumpet), Skuli Sverrisson (electric bass), and Jim Black (drums) - this is a jazz record of unusual power, concentration and feeling. Speed is well known for his recordings with various Downtown stars: John Zorn, Dave Douglas, Tim Berne, Myra Melford, Mark Dresser, etc. His Balkan/middle-eastern folk jazz group Pachora (also featuring Black and Sverrisson, along with Brad Shepik) has two very well-received CDs out on Knitting Factory. (Audiophile-quality 20-bit recording by Jim Anderson.)

Reviews
Chris Speed is a talent to watch out for... [His] open-ended compositions span a variety of styles that spur the players to bring out their best for the ensemble and the tune. Whether tackling a Middle Eastern-flavored groove (Wheatstone"), ethereal free improvisation ("Tulip") or punchy, funk tinged Don Cherry-meets Herbie Hancock-at-Jimmy Guiffre's-house jazzz ("Reconnoiter"), Speed & Co. can do it all... The is The Stuff, the Stuff that reminds one that jazz is a virile organism despite some folk's attempts to turn it into an uptown confection or a museum piece.
