Steve Harris Za Um (SLAMCD 253)
This is a spontaneous performance recorded in Poole last year for saxophonist/producer George Haslam’s unswervingly independent Slam label. It features a quintet led by improv drummer Steve Harris, with viola player and electric violinist Cathy Stevens, saxophonist Geoff Hearn, clarinetist Karen Wimhurst and guitarist Udo Dzierzanowski. The guitarist introduces a raw, abstract-contemporary dimension to which the others respond.
There’s an odd, crabwise groove and a kind of faltering grace over a steady guitar riff to Lorry in the Pond. The title track opens like a Jan Garbarek piece, with Hearn’s soprano sax hauntingly wheeling and gliding - as if in a distant room - before the clarinet enters a slow dance with him and Harris’s loose, splashy drum sound. Some of the music is brooding and darkly minimalist, with morricone guitar twangs echoing over rumbling bass-drum patterns; some is squawky and impulsive, some vivid and conversational. This is virtuosic and varied improvisation. John Fordham The Guardian 14 March 2003
