Our Lady Of The Flowers, titled in homage to French writer Jean Genet, constitutes the second disc by Declared Enemy, a familiar foursome convened by pianist Matthew Shipp. That association apart, the participants share a lot of history together. As a result they move like a finely tuned machine with well oiled parts through a program of nine selections credited to the pianist, but which sound like group inventions.
And those parts are magnificent. Drummer Gerald Cleaver creates a chattering pulse fashioned from interlocking lines from disparate elements of his kit, while bassist William Parker majors on ferocious momentum, leavened by the occasional melodic serenade. Shipp propounds his utterly distinctive style, with nagging motifs prominent, though he reins in his customary explosions. Rounding out the ensemble on reeds, Sabir Mateen generates a palpable emotional charge through his surging forays into the altissimo registers.
