'Waves of Extension' speaks the same language as the late John Russell and keeps his conversation with humanity going. Drawn from duo album Gusts Against Particles to be released by the new Open Systems label on May Day, an auspicious choice of date, guitarist Joe Morris is superb as too is double bassist Damon Smith. Hearing Morris back in 2009 when he was touring with saxophonist Tony Bevan, The Necks drummer Tony Buck and bassist Dominic Lash that night at the Vortex in east London Morris was stimulating as the American certainly proved to be the magnet for the other three in the second set, often finding a cluster of notes that brought a momentous clarity to the group’s collective sound. His sticking power here on this new record is also clear. The tremendously alert pair recorded this album in June 2019. The springy reverberant quality produced from the strings and the salty harmonic interplay coupled with a circling motion that keeps the focus on an equality of contribution as the pair collectively improvise is agile and very invigorating.
