THE REMOTE VIEWERS: Last Man in Europe
THE REMOTE VIEWERS: Last Man in Europe
"The peculiar brainchild of tenor saxophonist David Petts, The Remote Viewers have sometimes included six or seven members ata time. Reduced to the key trio of Petts, Adrian Northover on soprano sax and bassist John Edwards, the project sheds the clumsy Harry Partch rhythms and wonky English spy themes of recent albums and returns to its central preoccupation of melding Petts’s dry, precise and austere chamber charts with high wire improvisation. “A Plague of Initials” is a perfect example, with soprano sax and bass transmitting a cryptic semaphore while the tenor rides the razor edge of altissimo. Imagine Roscoe Mitchell in a striped blazer, trapped in Portmeirion." - Daniel Spicer, The Wire
