With Charette working a frothy modern version of a Hammond B-3 like McGriff and McDuff, Power from the Air initially comes on like a blast of grits-and-gravy goodness, only to be teeter-tottered by dissonant ensemble sections and odd-metered, often over-the-bar-line figures that could spin heads and scare farm animals. But that’s the album’s undeniable, if quirky, charm, cracking a new wrinkle in old-fashioned duds.
