Polyp Ah Um! Could there be a more arrogant album title? And yet this art gallery for your ears more than lives up to the promise -- or threat -- implicit in the Mingus reference. Improvised live in the studio (direct to 2-track digital tape) during one week in June 2000, and featuring guest guitar wizard Les Raww (of The Pine Box Boys), Polyp Ah Um is two LP's worth of rarefied, hypnotic, even (dare we say it?) beautiful music. And only one track -- the notorious "I Can't Stop Fucking Myself" -- has lyrics, so you can play most of it for your grandparents! Thrill to the sound of jazz, as only Reagan's Polyp could make it.
