    Great review by Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
    TURBULENCE [With PEK / BOB MOORES / DAVID HARRIS / YURI ZBITNOV] -Viscous Friction (Evil Clown 9106; USA) Turbulence feature Dave PEK on tenor & bari saxes, clarinets, double-reeds, sheng, game calls…, Bob Moores on trumpets, foghorn & electronics, David Harris on trombone, tuba & foghorn and Yuri Zbitnov on drums. As David Peck and Leap of Faith continue to add members, a number of satellite groups have emerged: Metal Chaos Ensemble, String Theory and now Turbulence. Mr. Peck and drummer Yuri Zbitnov are both consistent members of LoF while the other two players here, Mr. Moores and Mr. Harris are more occasional members of Leap of faith and their offshoot projects. Recorded at the Evil Clown home-studio in April of 2016. Although the instrumentation here is mainly reeds, brass and percussion, the results are still mysterious, strange, occasionally disorienting and often enchanting. It sounds as if time is being slowed down and we are submerged in a vat of jello at times. The music calms down to more skeletal, spacious sounds for a long stretch. Mr. Zbitnov is gifted percussionist who always knows when to add to or lay out from the flow of events. He barely plays for the first 15 minutes and finally enters with some excellent mallet work as the set becomes more intense, eventually getting into a spirited groove. There are some wonderful, strange, low-end improv going on featuring tuba, trumpet, contra-alto clarinet (?) and percussion. Things grow more weird when PEK switches some of those double-reeds like oboe or bassoon. The music here is clearly recorded, warm and well-balanced. Once again Mr. PEK & Co. do a fine job of creating their own fascinating world. Much less extreme than most of the Leap of Faith discs. ... more
