The intense excitement generated here is well calculated. Drummer Paal Nilssen-Love’s ambitiously-sized ensemble thrives on unexpected breaks, contrasting almost intimate solos with sudden eruptions of massive sound. They’re a fine dozen of musicians and employ a sophisticated dramaturgy with composed passages that serve as anchor points. These compositions come with their own, built-in resolution. Large Unit proves to be a highly disciplined ensemble: by now, they’ve had a lot of experience playing together, and they’re an improvisational big band of a very different, extremely dynamic kind. This band strikes an ideal balance between individual freedom, intentional structure, and collective dissolution of form.
