The obvious comparison is Ornette Coleman. That's the young Ornette, who burst onto the scene with such startling freshness in the late 1950s. It's there in the melodies - beauty is an essential component - and the bond between Chris Biscoe on alto and Loz Speyer on trumpet, so reminiscent of Coleman and Don Cherry's working relationship.

These players are musical twins, typically starting in tight unison, moving on to glancing counterpoint and taking off in freewheeling solos before a joyful reunion. But Inner Space Music functions as a collective unit, and Julie Walkington on bass and Seb Rochford on drums are just as vital. It's music of marvelous clarity, buoyed by loping, shifting rhythms. More lyrical than free, and human than abstract, this is serious fun of the first order. The imminent CD, Five Animal Dances, is a monument to a great band.
