Bedouin Hornbook (Pfmentum Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Bedouin Hornbook is the perfect moniker for this album. This is horn centric avant-garde jazz that, like the Bedouins, wanders around never finding a permanent home, but always leaving a mark and always contributing something significant. This is improvisational music that highlights each member of the band from time to time but never settles for anything as generic as solo showcasing or taking turns holding down the melody and beat while someone else takes 12 measures to showboat. This is intellectually and emotionally challenging music that in the end proves satisfying and rewarding.
