Strictly Missionary (US)

Snappy, edgy lines that emerge as “themes”, passing the unisono pretty near, then three worlds of sound at once, suddenly rocky, funky rhythms that dissolve in polytonality…. The five New Yorkers around sax wizard Chris Pitsiokos and guitar star Wendy Eisenberg never seem to loose the plot! Obviously a kind of philosophical attitude, already Wittgenstein said, one has to “[…] step into the chaos to enjoy it.” It’s children’s play for these Brooklyners… what’s a bit of musical overkill for a New Yorker?
