The first thing that struck me about ENRIQUE HANEINE’s, THE MIND’S MURAL [Elegant Walk Records 002] is how Ornette Coleman influenced the writing here. Like Coleman, Haneine, it would seem, likes to write lines of short spurts. It’s effective and his quartet [Anna Webber-ts, Catherine Sikora-ts/ss, Carlo De Rosa-b] handles it well. The program of eleven tunes [65:55] are all Haneine’s on this 3/2/18 recording and they tire by the end. This has moments.
