"Farmers By Nature is drummer Gerald Cleaver, bassist William Parker, and pianist Craig Taborn -- a fully-improvising unit, a complete musical collective. Each of these men are highly regarded & admired composers and bandleaders in their own right; their coming together to create new music is always an auspicious and deeply fruitful occasion. Superbly attuned listeners and masterful players of their respective instruments, they are without question one of the finest improvising units/musical groups in the world today. Out of This World's Distortions references the winsome beauty & powerful, uncorrupted, graceful elegance that arises still, even through the horrors that are perpetrated every day by humans against the Earth and one another. FBN create a sonic ecosystem that reflects this magnificence: sowing seeds of sound and bringing them to blossom, fully inviting in the process. Once again they have created an immersive experience yielding awe-inspiring magic. This album was recorded almost exactly 2 years to the date of their highly acclaimed debut Farmers By Nature (AUM053) from which they take their group name. The album proceeds/flows exactly as it was performed in the studio that day, opening with an exquisite elegy to the late great saxophonist Fred Anderson (who passed the evening before the recording) and closing with an impeccably mesmerizing cosmic pulse piece. The entirety of the album is simply stunning."
