Sunday, February 1, 2015. Kali Z Fasteau - Piano Rapture (Flying Note, 2014) . Fasteau's recent Piano Raptures is an exciting mix of solo and duo pieces performed with sympathetic collaborators including saxophonist's Kidd Jordan, L. Mixashawn Rozie, . Parran and percussionist Ron McBee. The lovely somewhat low-fi recording begins with rapture titled 'Another Southpaw. Intense and sometimes jarring, one can easily imagine Fasteau approaching the piano with intense physicality. This is a very interesting album and one I keep coming back to - the spontaneity of the music just teems with life. Even after years of listening to free music music, it never ceases to amaze me when those elusive and intangible elements come together to create something that goes beyond expectation and deliberate planning.
