World Without Form by Nat Birchall
Released: Nov 2012
Label: Sound Soul And Spirit
If you've spent much time with Coltrane's classic quartet, it won't take you long to locate the North Star in Birchall's aesthetic sky. His opening tenor strains are pure Crescent-era 'Trane, so much so that it's not even a backhanded compliment to note that Birchall keeps his project alive under the weight of such a heavy influence. The work on vibes by Corey Mwamba helps give the project some needed distinctness (check his cool-factor in the theme to "The Black Ark"). And the lighter-touch stuff, like the ballad "Dream of Eden," works, if only for playing against the weightier material.
