Ironically named after a bad review of a Cecil Taylor/Anthony Braxton gig, this pickup band's 38-minute jam session feels more like a triumph. Pianist Matthew Shipp switches to organ, and channels Sun Ra (as well as Taylor), keeping simple riffs going with one hand while stirring a thick chordal stew with the other. J. Spaceman's guitar, on loan from Spiritualized, brings the squall (along with John Coxon's). The beat is elastic: sometimes stiff, sometimes subtle, here and there rockish. All-worlds-collide sessions flirt with disaster by design, but this one skates it -- and finds profundity.
