Uversa

Uversa, with Neil Haverstick’s Space Music, Thursday, May 25, at the Lion’s Lair, is the ethereal, guitar-driven project of composer TJ Edwards -- who seems as comfortable strumming a classical acoustic guitar as he is generating some crunchy electric noise. Edwards’s debut CD, Uversa, is an effervescent, eclectic mix that includes instrumental gypsy- and classical-Spanish-flavored sounds aided by a lively percussion section, as well as free-jazz numbers guided by the searing saxophone of local blower Bret Sexton. Edwards is a player with a penchant for improvisation, a quality that comes through on the recording and should only be heightened in a live setting. This is music that defies an easy label; it’s not strictly jazz, rock or space music. Rather, it’s something that requires a more careful ear and an openness to sounds that are unusual -- and universal.
