Badland's fourth album is this intriguing recording from 2005, published by Bug Incision Records. It's intriguing because the three musicians use their improvising skills and experience to find a way of working together in the extreme acoustic environment in which they found themselves, one September evening in Liverpool. St. Bride's Church does not present itself, at first hearing, as the ideal soundspace within which a post-jazz free improvising sax, drums and bass trio might work. But this recording is fascinating for those of us who love improvisation, because one can very clearly hear the musicians trying different styles of playing and combinations of textures to find those which will work most effectively within the space. The result is a journey of experimentation, frustration and ultimately discovery, brought about by three musicians working with open ears and minds, coupled with formidably flexible and advanced technical ability.
