Primitive Modern, Quadrama. As the quote above indicates, Gil Melle and his outfit were serious about rhythm and doing interesting things with rhythm. Listen, for instance, to "Ironworks. There's a triangle, showcased solo, alongside all the normal jazz trappings and belting out its own rhythmic figure, which is proceeded and followed by various other rhythmic figures. On the basis of the "Primitive Modern" tracks alone I highly recommend this album. If it affects you the way it affected me, it'll fundamentally alter your concept of rhythm.
