Luan Phung Quintet - L.A.

Guitarist Luan Phung lead his quintet (Matthew Chalmers, drums; James Hill, piano; Chris Rennie, sax; and able fill-in Mark Godfrey on bass) through a series of knotty pieces — his shout-outs to Schoenberg and titular nod to Louis Andriessen in this piece give some hints of where he's coming from. But the nimble trickery within the pieces (to say nothing of the bell chimes and dinosaur jokes) showed that there's ample playfulness at hand as well.
