Cool Fire is the third album produced in the Juice Jazz Collection. Like his two previous releases (The Anticipated Dawn and Kings of Infinite Space) it features a mix of new compositions and material written during the Firehouse years of the 1970s. One of the things that makes this album so refreshing is the way the music constantly toys with, parries, and complicates many misconceptions that circulate about avant garde jazz (that it is unstructured, that it is angry, that it can’t convey ballads convincingly, that it is unconnected to earlier traditions in jazz and blues). Listen, for instance, to the intimacy and vulnerability conveyed on his ballads “Tis Folly to Be Wise” and “Love.” Hear how the harmonic sophistication of “Cool Fire” or “Creavolution” lays waste to simplistic conceptions of ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ playing.  Experience the religious intensity of the chorale-like “Prayer,” a composition by William Parker that is beautifully delivered by Glover’s wife Jacquolen. Like many musical greats, Glover is a master of building structures without becoming restricted by them. His performances explore the tension between freedom and form as the band moves deep into the sonic landscapes of his compositions.
