We didn't have to wait long for a sequel to the legendary avant-garde saxophonist's first album with Craig Taborn (on organ and piano) and newcomer percussionist Kikanju Baku. This one's more consistently wild. So if you dig the high heat, dive right in to truth-in-titling cuts like "Frenzy House." Mitchell's circular-breathing prowess makes "Stay Hayfer" pure gold. There's even some (acoustic) fusion stuff happening in "They Rode for Them" -- the sound of 2014-era Chicago footwork DJ beat-madness colliding with late-'60s Chicago free-improv drone. That's beautiful.
