Ido Bukelman's Cracked Song

The Ido Bukelman Quartet's Ido Bukelman's Cracked Song was released on OutNow Recordings on 1st November 2011. The quartet is made up of Bukelman's regular trio of Bukelman himself, here on electric and acoustic guitar, bassist Assaf Hakimi and Udi Shlomo on drums and percussion, with the addition of one of Israel's most outstanding musicians, cellist Yuval Mesner.

Ido Bukelman's Cracked Song is surprisingly melodic in outlook, although ultimately, free improvisation still comes to the fore. And so do Bukelman's guitar pyrotechnics. Mesner is not shy of delivering some cracking cello fireworks, either. While challenging and stimulating, Ido Bukelman's Cracked Song is also remarkably accessible and often highly lyrical even. Full of surprises, this album is both bold and beautiful.

All compositions are by Bukelman, except the closer, Julia, which is a Lennon / McCartney classic. The compositions in themselves are mostly surprising in their strongly melodic orientation. Their quality is matched by that of the lively, exciting improvs all round.

Thoroughly consistent, Ido Bukelman's Cracked Song is also riveting, and demanding of being played again. Indeed, this is impossible to resist! This is one of the most interesting, stimulating and still beautiful albums of the past year or so to have come out of Israel. Bold, beautiful, and brilliant! And a very enjoyable listen.

The Ido Bukelman Quartet's Ido Bukelman's Cracked Song is something of a must have for the dedicated free jazz aficionado, and should even appeal to the more general jazz fan. Go on, live dangerously!
