There are plenty of passages on the recent three-CD set Acting Thinking Feeling (Now-Again), by the obscure Boston band Stark Reality, that count as jazz and jazz-derived (and most of the group’s work featured a very young John Abercrombie). The group’s members were all jazz players, but under the leadership of Oklahoma native Monty Stark—whose instrument was an amplified vibraphone distorted to sound like some celestial electronic keyboard—they willfully jumbled genres, grooves, and modes to a dizzying degree. Back in 2003, Stones Throw released a compilation of the group’s work called Now, but this new set reissues everything the band ever cut, including some crazy big-band material made before the band stripped down to a quartet.
