Boomkat Product Review:
Shuffling instrumentation, electronic flutters and great big dollops of staccato horn are the calling card of the improvisational jazz trio Tigersmilk, all of which make an appearance on their second album 'Tales From the Bottle'. Taking a similar approach to that of Australia's Triosk, Tigersmilk serve loose-limbed organic structures and season them with a unique blend of the avant garde and the abstract that looks beyond the traditional jazz selection box for inspiration. Often centred around Rob Mazurek's complex cornet excursions, songs such as '3' marble Dylan van der Schyff's crackling percussion and Jason Roebke's brumous bass with an unbridled vivacity that is guaranteed to exhilarate even the most reserved of improv fans. Fierce, experimental and overtly intellectual, Jamie Cullum it ain't!
