Bobby Previte / Charlie Hunter + Greg Osby - "Groundtruther", "Latitude", Thirsty Ear
www.thirstyear.com

Groundtruther is an idea for a duo that percussionist Bobby Previte and guitarist Charlie Hunter had a while back. The duo would involve a special guest on each of their releases that would ultimately "liven" things up. In the case of "Latitude" (a first of three promised discs - the other two will be Longitude and Altitude), the throne of the special guest is inhabited by alto player, Greg Osby. How does the music sound like, you ask? This is definitely Bobby Previte at his most experimental phase. His use of electronics is quite heavy throughout the disc (severe use of sampling, reverb and other mish-mash methods), which only adds flavour to the context. Charlie Hunter adds layers of angular guitar lines and solos alongside Previte's wild and ever-shifting percussive maneuvers. Finally, we come to Greg Osby. The alto playing is processed by Previte to make it sound other-worldly, as if it didn't even originate on this planet. (Check out "Horse Latitudes North" for an example) On "Tropic of Concern", the trio do their best at imitating a bad drum'n'bass outfit (and I don't know whether this is a good thing, or whether this sort of experimentation will be seen as something utterly evil by fans of individual members of this trio?). In general, "Latitude" is not a bad first effort for this trio. It's just that my expecting revelations on the next two releases.
