Perelman is the natural heir to Gato Barbieri when it comes to saxophone screamers, but there’s nothing ragged or uncontrolled about his playing. This is his first meeting with another horn player, and he and Sclavis make a superlative free front line. Wodrascka joins Sclavis on three tracks and is equally startling. RC
