Frank reviews perCepTION

So there I was, nursing the blood of the bean from a ceramic chalice, watching the nubile cavalcade's ebb and flow at Java's on Gibbs Street, when what to my wondering eyes appeared but perCepTION on stage kicking out the jams in hiiiiigh gear. This outfit was tres cool with lots of exploratory spirit that never went too far as its members were tethered to the earth and one another.

Just when you thought a soloist wasn't coming back, another member jumped in and mirrored his melody precisely. Classic bop push and pull and classic call and response. The funky back beat kept it fresh along with some of the band's emphasis on tones from creamy to crunchy ... that's my perception, anyway.

perCepTION will perform again on Tuesday, September 23, at Java's Cafe. 6 p.m. Free.
