In Chemical Clock, trumpeter Ray Larsen helps the Seattle quartet to merge flamboyant jazz fusion and avant-garde funk in ways that recall Ornette Coleman’s Of Human Feeling, Henry Threadgill’s weirdly angled yet graceful experiments, and Miles Davis’s electric era. Tyrant Lizard—Larsen’s trio with guitarist Gregg Belisle-Chi and bassist Carmen Rothwell—scales back Chemical Clock’s volatility into a starkly beautiful, meditatively melodic approach that recalls Bill Frisell’s gentle stateliness and some of ECM Records’ hushed solemnity from the label’s peak decades (the 1970s and ’80s), and even Miles’s Aura. Tonight, Tyrant Lizard celebrate the release of their enchanting self-titled debut album. DAVE SEGAL
