Planetary Unknown was recorded in November 2010 and released on Steven Joerg's Brooklyn-based AUM Fidelity record label in 2011. Anyone who knows and loves modern creative improvised music is sure to be moved by the combination of hearts and minds preserved on this recording, for saxophonist David S. Ware, pianist Cooper Moore, and bassist William Parker are joined by Rashied Ali's brother, Muhammad Ali. That name ought to ring a few bells, as the drummer's lengthy performance history began with his appearance on Albert Ayler's final recordings, and includes a number of awesome collaborations with Alan Shorter, Frank Wright, and Archie Shepp. More recently, Ali has been heard with Noah Howard and Bobby Few. His presence on Planetary Unknown brings alchemic potency to an already effulgent confluence of master improvisers. A strong addition to each participant's discography, Planetary Unknown preserves for posterity seven rituals conducted with unforgettable honesty and grace. ~ arwulf arwulf
Professional Reviews
The Wire (p.55) - "[An] uplifting experience. Bassist William Parker magisterially steers the ensemble continuum, sustaining its energy, monitoring its balance, helping shape its course."
Down Beat (p.56) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Duality Is One' is a fabulous parabolic duo with drummer muhammad Ali, with Ware betraying Albert Ayler-ish intervals and note-end scoops while Ali maintains a loose polyrhythmic energy..."
JazzTimes (p.64) - "Things begin with assurance on the 22-minute 'Passage Wudang.' It's a firestorm of sounds, each player interacting closely with his comrades."
