Do you think free jazz has to be completely inaccessible and humorless? Enter the Flying Luttenbachers. This reissue of the cassette originally released on the band's own ugEXPLODE label is the only recording of the original Luttenbacher lineup, which included avant-garde jazz veteran Hal Russell. Playing what drummer/clarinetist Weasel Walter calls "punk jazz" in his liner notes, all the hallmarks of free jazz are here, with squawking saxophones and clarinet, though taken to the "punk" extreme when played over Walter's incessant, hyperspeed drumming. Still, the music is not entirely formless. Listen closely and you'll hear melodies and recurring themes.

When confirmed by the others, he proceeds to beat the living daylight out of his drums. But this is not to say that the music is not taken seriously. Live at WNUR proves to be both a fun and engaging listening, descriptions that do not often go hand-in-hand with free jazz.

Walter soon teamed with bassist Bill Pisarri and others to found the Sound Improvisation Collective, who on a flyer for their March 8, 1991, debut performance described themselves as...
