This album is a reunion of sorts for drummer Whit Dickey, violist Mat Maneri, and pianist Matthew Shipp, since it carries over the same lineup from Dickey’s earlier Life Cycle, less alto saxophonist Rob Brown. It’s all group improvisations, because, well, that’s how the finest from NYC’s downtown scene roll. Thus, the success of this music rests on telepathy, and these guys know each other extremely well. Conceived as it was played, Vessel In Orbit is unpredictable, melodic, and has form built around emotion, not formal structures. When it’s done by such elastic artists as this trio, it all comes together beautifully. – Something Else Reviews (S. Victor Aaron)
