Drummer and bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington’s newest group Social Science hails a new direction in her sound and direction with this politically charged, powerful protest double CD set. A brooding atmosphere lingers over the spoken word ‘Trapped In America’, Debo Ray guests on the poly rhythmic ‘Love’ and the smoky jazz of ‘Waiting Game’ while the second CD of the set is a four part suite under the name ‘Dreams And Desperate Measures’. Part 1 is a 17 minute epic of free/improv jazz, Part 2 has a more spiritual feel while Part 3 and 4 work towards a fuller, groove based crescendo. Abstract and deftly dismantled soundscapes. There’s a definite lean to hip hop in the spoken word elements an this project with a keen sense of experimentation that makes it a challenging listen at times. Lyrically it’s worth the effort.
