Colin Fisher / Mike Gennaro - Tactile Stories [Cacophonous Revival Recordings 015]

Put out on the circuit via the Virginia-based imprint that is Cacophonous Revival Recordings as the labels cat.no. 015 is "Tactile Stories", the latest collaborational album effort created by Colin Fisher and Mike Gennaro on reeds and guitar as well as on drums respectively. Released on July 29th, 2k22 the roughly 56 minutes spanning album is comprised of four extended cuts with three of them exceeding the 13 minutes mark their most recent longplay outing starts of on a krautsy and meandering, yet highly energetic Improv tip with "Ex Nihilo" which is based on a ever so slighty morphing motif and complex, powerful and ever rolling drum movements, setting the path for things to come like the deeper, more Jazz Noir-leaning but still agitated piece that is "Ekstasis", the FreeJazz- / Jazz Improv-standard to be named "Esse" which is working its way towards a squealing, squeaking and thundering climax before abruptly turning towards an almost tender, stripped down vibe whereas the closing cut "Epinoia" presents a surprisingly introvert, somewhat twangy and peaceful attitude with Mr. Colin Fisher fully focusing on tender, yet lively guitar improvisations which might probably resonate most with fans of classic, non-improvised Jazz for a reason. If this sounds like your jam, go and check this out.
