Mandarin Movie Mandarin Movie
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Aesthetics
Rob Mazurek (cornetist and more for Chicago Underground Trio and Tigersmilk) has assembled a stellar cast of post-jazzers and noise-rockers for what sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime session. The result: a turbulent psychedelic-jazz classic. Mandarin Movie feels like its exceptional players-including guitarist Alan Licht and bassist Matthew Lux-loaded up on the strongest stimulants and cut this cyclotronic free-fusion gem in one take. Aside from sporadic respites of woozy, languorous ambience, Mandarin Movie aspires to the level of immortal, chaotic works by Et Cetera, Love Cry Want, and Miles Davis-with a powerful My Bloody Valentine-meets-Metal Machine Music climax.
