Review: Ken Aldcroft’s Convergence Ensemble "Sneaky Pete-Slugs'" (TRP-015)
By: Fo

AVANT-JAZZ – Canadian guitarist leads a very fine sextet, balancing free movement and cerebral composition. Aldcroft’s lightly jabbing sound sometimes steps in front but more often buries itself within the ensemble, providing texture and quiet guidance. The whole group is excellent, but Nicole Rampersaud’s rusty trumpet, Evan Shaw’s soulful sax and Joe Sorbara’s shape-shifting drums stand out the most.
