Afrocop’s lithe, technically dazzling jazz fusion has always flown lower on the radar than it should, given the trio’s skill and ease in navigating their “psychedelic gospel” suites. Featuring keyboardist Noel Brass Jr., Screens’ bassist Carlos Tulloss, and Cascadia ’10's Andy Sells on drums, Afrocop admirably maneuver among the improvisatory incandescence of Herbie Hancock, soundtrack-leaning ambience, twisting post-rock passages, and moments of unadorned, blissful Rhodes contemplations. Perhaps it’s true what they say about buying the cow when you can get the milk for free: instead of playing no-cover shows like this at Vito’s, I’m willing to bet Afrocop’s profile would raise five-fold if they started charging entry fees to their intricate and melodic soundscapes. In the meantime, be grateful it’s a cheap and classy date alternative to whatever multiplex dreck’s on offer this evening. KYLE FLECK
