Gentile, Kate - Find Letter X : 3 x CDs

SKU 28-PIRC100.2
“Find Letter X, the eponymous release from the Brooklyn-based band led by drummer/composer Kate Gentile, features saxophonist Jeremy Viner, pianist Matt Mitchell, and bassist Kim Cass.
Gentile's 2021 release Snark Horse - co-led with Mitchell - was a gargantuan six-volume set that Downbeat called "Monumental... Creating an abstract galaxy from scratch, they sound like they know every black hole and supercluster in the place."
The similarly-ambitious new work - across three densely-packed CDs housed in a custom-designed package - bursts with inventive details and dramatic arcs. Each disc contains a distinct thematic identity while simultaneously contributing to a larger narrative trajectory. Meticulously-constructed and highly intentional, Find Letter X is a wide-ranging exploration of diverse sonics and contrasting forms: a vibrant feedback loop of virtuosic improvisational and compositional ingenuity entirely unified by Gentile's singular musical aesthetic.”

I bought this CD sight unseen because most of the players are on "Phalanx Ambassadors" which is a big favorite for it's precision and free-floating rhythmic aggression courtesy of Gentile and Cass. However I hate random electronic beeps and approximation of dogshit, so off to the used bookstore goes this one. What context would one have to find to enjoy this?
