In the 1980s this trio was one of the loudest small bands in the world. Then they disbanded, and this is their return album, aptly titled Reloaded. Of course, they are a bit quieter than before, but the sheer power of Jojo Mayer's polyrhythms is still here, and Sokal's tenor is prone to grunt and cry, always for a good purpose. Känzig's bass is the link between those two forces of nature, and its huge sound definitely has the weight to accomplish this titanic job.
