about

The album opens on an explosive note with a turbulent tenor sax-drums breakdown between Worlds collide when the raucous Budapest-based power trio ‘JÜ’ (consisting of fire-breathing guitarist Àdàm Meszaròs, fuzz-bassist Ernö Hock and the remarkably flexible drummer Andràs Halmos) joins Oslo-based saxophonist Kjetil Møster for this subversive meeting of the minds on RareNoise Records,

A powerful manifesto for ecstatic, exploratory, envelope-pushing music mixed by Bill Laswell and mastered by Michael Fossenkemper. JÜ Meets Møster bridges the gap between free jazz and hellacious, distortion-laced, guitar-driven hardcore rock.

Møster and Halmos on “Dear Johann” which takes on the feel of latter day John Coltrane or free jazz icon Albert Ayler jamming with the Allman Brothers Band on “Whipping Post” or vintage King Crimson on “21st Century Schizoid Man.”

“Bhajan” opens on a darker, more mysterious vibe before building to a potent crescendo, with Møster wailing on baritone sax, which is steeped in the tradition of Jimi Hendrix’s bold jazz-rock anthem “Third Stone From the Sun.”

Møster stretches freely with baritone sax on the moody and spacious “Morze” while “Hassassin,” full of slamming unisons and fierce overblowing by Møster, is an intense showcase for drummer Halmos.

Meszaros adds another frantic six-string onslaught at the tag of this intense offering. The four intrepid musicians explore collectively on the more atmospheric “KJÜ” and they close out the collection with the expansive, 15-minute “One,” which makes dramatic use of echo to create an otherworldly texture before building to a powerhouse conclusion of thunderous proportions.
