Perry Weissman 3

3
Shrat Field Recordings

The first release in nine years from experimental jazz outfit Perry Weissman 3, 3 seems less abstract and slightly more organic than some of the band's earlier music. The dissonance at the end of "Summer Circus" fits in with a possible covert theme suggested in titles like "Nobody Could Have Predicted," "Misadventure Was the Likely Cause of Death," and "The Next Big Thing Might Be the Last," with predictions of good times coming apart for unexpected reasons. Mostly, though, this is sonically rich smooth jazz in the vein of Wes Montgomery circa Down Here on the Ground, but more upbeat. Expertly and vividly executed, these songs — "Misadventure," in particular — set a mood like the subdued but unforgettable outros in a P.T. Anderson film.
