Mark Langford and percussionist Bob Helson have been playing together off-and-on for over forty years. Expect synergy; the reality is that in a free context, there is a strong telepathic anticipation between them which at times sounds like a single mind at work. Langford’s bass clarinet can become almost mantra like…. put your ears to his tenor saxophone and in places it sounds like ‘late period’ Sonny Rollins. There’s a deep lyrical control through the horn in amongst some riveting clatter coming off guitar and drumwork. Steve Day
