On Old News Borrowed Blues Warren Smith gathers the Composer’s Workshop Ensemble to explore his aWarpproach to music, which he refers to as ‘a little bit inside, a little bit outside.’  Starting the album out with an energetic big band opener, Lock the Toilet Door, the band follows up with Rivers State Suite, a polyrhythmic multi-segment tone poem inspired by a trip to Nigeria.  The Hungarian Gypsy Song features a haunting melody on soprano sax with tasteful backup from the rest of the band.   After another more traditional big band number, One More Lick for Harold Vick, the album closes with the sprawling avant Free Forms 1-4, a less structured open piece with intro bass work, a over the top baritone sax solo followed by solos from other horns and vibes, and a closing poem read by Warren Smith.

Wow, what a nice surprise! This CD is growing on me with every listen... Slow-cooking horns and tuned percussion interacting in unexpected ways. Beautiful.
