Blast 4tet – Altrastrata - Full Album.
Some people saw in A Sophisticated Face the summit of this group's art, but others were mildly annoyed by its excesses. Altrastrata brings it back to exciting basics: a hard, fast-hitting quartet playing intricate compositions that leave room for improvisation, whether as backed-up soloists or as pockets of all-out improv. Saxophonist Dirk Bruinsma has rarely been in better shape. He flutters and stutters his way through extremely complex yet driving melodic lines that recall Henry Cow as seen through the eyes of Doctor Nerve.
Altra Strata is a music studio album recording by BLAST (essive Rock) released in 2003 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Many have said "Altrastrata" is their best record which is why I decided to check it out. I agree by the way. Lots of electronics on here as well.

Blast is a group from Holland with a long and fine history. We can file Blast under "Rock In Opposition", subsection "Complicated European Music": knotty compositional developments, a careful attention to timbre, a rhythm section that often plays "against" the melody.
Blast was founded in 1989 by Frank Crijns and Dirk Bruinsma. Over its more than 20 years of existence Blast had a multitude of different lineups from the basic quartet up to a mini chamber ensemble and a duo with laptops, Blast (. ). The musical focus has changed quite a bit during that time. The group's musical development has traveled from complex composed art-rock to a much more open style that combines elements of new music with rock based grooves and free improvisation.
