Portuguese tenor saxophonist Rodrigo Amado had, for years, been gaining the attention of American players, and recording his Motion Trio with guests such as Peter Evans and Jeb Bishop. When he conceived of this quartet, it was hand-in-the-glove fit. The title, This Is Our Language seems to refer to Ornette Coleman's This Is Our Music (Atlantic, 1961) and In All Languages (Caravan Of Dreams, 1987). Like the two Coleman recordings, separated by nearly thirty years, Amado's band is both before its time and, certainly of this moment.Amado's tenor saxophone opens the disc, joined almost immediately by Joe McPhee's alto. The pair slowly weave a simple blues pattern until Kent Kessler's bass walks in. The Chicago bassist recorded two splendid discs with Amado and Paal Nilssen-Love a decade ago, plus his pulse held the famous McPhee/Peter Brotzmann disc Tales Out Of Time (Hatology, 2004) together. Amado and McPhee speak the language of Ornette, but also that of Albert Ayler. The title track opens with a drum solo by Chris Corsano, who is probably the best improvising non-jazz drummer working today. His music, which can be heard on two stellar duo recordings with McPhee on Roaratorio Records, refuses to be limited by the moniker jazz. The immediacy of the sound rushes past. McPhee's pocket trumpet ignites Amado. Both players break the speed limit, urged on by Kessler's pace. The music slows, then a vocalized trumpet with breath is interlaced with Amado's quiet solo to bring the piece to an end. - MARK CORROTO
