Fire! Orchestra - Exit! (2013)

The latest in a series of releases from Fire, a trio made up of Mats Gustafsson, Johan Berthling, and Andreas Werliin.

In particular, Fire Orchestra is Fire plus twenty five.  The group delivers an excellent take on free jazz, though that may be pigeonholing the music actually contained on Exit.  Reminiscent of post rock, the album's two tracks both thrive on the gradual crescendo while centering around a steady backbone.  While the music does eventually let loose, the subtlety of much of the playing (and singing) is what gives the record its atmosphere which, in turn, may set it aside from what people normally think of as free jazz.  Highly recommended.
