Story

This impression of Montauk's tidal shifts begins with a peaceful walk on the beach at low tide. Later, a metric shift signals the incoming high tide along with an ominous trombone dialogue between Jeff Nelson and Mike Christianson, signalling the treacherous developing undertow. Lee Finkelstein leads the band masterfully through the transition to "high tide," slamming into an uncompromising half-time shuffle. In its final segment, the twisted melody returns in this funky groove a la Tower of Power, treated in a harmonic language inspired by the practices of Igor Stravinsky. The clip provided on this site is the end of the piece; a nearly 13.5 minute triptych. The clip at www.cdbaby.com/abjo provides its first two mnutes.
