Robert Vincs - Devic Kingdom [Extreme - 2007]

Robert Vincs is an extremely creative and talented Saxphone player, With Devic Kingdom he mixes together all manner of musically colour and emotion offend stepping outside jazz for new flavours and undercurrents. Utilizing here as well as Saxophone(saxello and tenor), we have;  Fairlight synthesizer, Korean Bone Flute, leather horn, electronics and self-designed SDIII Six String upright Bass. All giving the album often a very haunted feeling of misplaced realities.

It all opens up with the wonderfully jarring and off-kilter title track which mixes stop-start percussion, weaving and strange bass & fairlight magic, which seems to move like liquid across the complex rhythmic shuffles and cut-up tribal elements. As Vincs Sax spurts pure soaring beauty ever so often over the morphing and alien base. Later on we have Sanatorium  Lake, were Vincs sax rise like a majestic and sad bird from the ambient sun going down haze, he weaves wonderfully emotive and pained patterns from his instrument. On Body with out organs, he pushes out strange anglar honks and bends of sound,modified electrically to sound like some kind of strange bent harmonic machine talk, like old going wrong robot talking amongst them self’s as thier power source slips in and out.

Through out the just over 45 minute playing time Vincs is always experiment, matching the jarring and the beautiful perfectly. But he  never over steps the musical mark into improvised meltdown, and making sure it still hangs onto structure and harmonic charm.
