Double Bass – Max Johnson
Drums – Mike Pride
Pedal Steel Guitar – Susan Alcorn
Piano – Kris Davis
 
Recorded April 27, 2014 at Acoustic Recording - Mixed at Greenwood Underground
Clean Feed ‎– CF439CD

Max Johnson may be the only musician to have worked with legendary improvisers Anthony Braxton, John Zorn, Muhal Richard Abrams & William Parker, bluegrass royalty Sam Bush & David Grisman, in addition to rock pioneers Adrian Belew, Vernon Reid & the Butthole Surfers. That eclecticism is at work on his new album, In the West, featuring piano trio, augmented by pedal steel guitar. The album features Kris Davis on piano, Susan Alcorn on pedal steel guitar, and Mike Pride on drums, in addition to Johnson’s bass playing and composing.
Kris Davis is one of the most breathtakingly original voices on the piano in the modern era, and her multiple projects as a leader, in addition to working with luminaries Eric Revis, Tony Malaby & Bill Frisell, display her masterful control of sound.

Susan Alcorn is one of the premiere innovators on pedal steel guitar, taking it’s roots in country and western, imbuing it with the lush harmonic beauty of Messiaen & Varese, and adding a frenetic wild free jazz energy, leading her to lend her amazing musical gifts to people like Mary Halvorson, Michael Formanek & Ellery Eskelin.

Mike Pride has led an broad musical life, doing everything from improvising with masters Joe Morris, Nate Wooley, and Peter Evans, to playing hardcore punk with the legendary band Millions of Dead Cops, but it is his unique vision and mastery of the drums that have made him one of the most powerful and moving drummers you’ll ever hear.

The combination of these four individuals is what makes “In the West” a compelling testament. Drawing on a wide world of sounds, this quartet shifts through audio landscapes, twisting through the open and remarkable compositions of Johnson, finding themselves finally at a patient and powerful medley from Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack to “Once Upon a Time in the West”. The journey the listener embarks on is lush and beautiful, wild and thorny, strange and uncharted, but always a treat to the ear, and moving to the soul.

Chris Speed: Tenor Sax
Chris Tordini: Acoustic Bass
Dave King: Drums


Recorded live at Brooklyn Recording on March 3, 2016.

This new album by Chris Speed‘s excellent trio with drummer Dave King and bassist Chris Tordini is in many ways Speed’s most fully developed and personal work to date. Since arriving in New York in the early 1990s, he has become one of the most vital improvising musicians on the scene through work that has always ranged widely, moving from a jazz base out through various forms of folk, classical and rock music.
With the formation of this trio Speed has reversed course: moving from these outer explorations back into something that is unquestionably jazz. What is most striking about this record is that the early jazz influences are now fully center stage. Instead of being one of a number of competing musical influences, some kind of feeling of the aesthetic of Lester Young is now at the center of everything. At a time when many jazz players are continuing to look further and further outside the tradition, this is a group returning from other explorations to work deep within the jazz tradition, bringing everything else they’ve learned back in …

The resulting music is joyful and generous and Speed has an uncanny knack for coming up with tunes that can create a whole worlds behind an often catchy melodic surface. (Anthony Burr, from the liner notes) — Intakt

All Arrangements by Triple Treat

Recorded and Mixed at Espai Sonor Montoliu by David Casamitjana, November 5th and 6th 2016
 
Triple Treat is intended to recover the compositions of bassists who have written the history of jazz (Ray Brown, Oscar Pettiford, Sam Jones …) among the tunes that tend to be part of the jazz repertoire, in a frame sound and rhythm inspired by the Oscar Peterson trio without battery (Herb Ellis, Ray Brown); Ahmad Jamal (Crawford Ray, Israel Crosby), Monty Alexander (Ray Brown, Russell Malone) and even the simplicity of the sound of Nat King Cole trio.

For this adventure we have the finest guitarist Dave Mitchell; expressive piano Bernat Font and forceful bass Queralt Camps. Triple Treat is now presenting his first album “With just my dreams but not alone” (Temps Record 2017).

Bernat Font (Barcelona, 1989) is a renowned pianist of the new generation of musicians in Catalonia. Coming from blues, he arrived to jazz through ragtime and stride piano, and he maintains a strong link with tradition. His first trio album won the award “Best proposed new jazz” Enderrock Awards 2012. In his artistic personality, several critics have highlighted the ability to inject a new reading in the old styles of jazz renewing them; the combination of lyricism, acceleration and precision; and his talent as a composer.

Queralt Camps (Barcelona, 1980) comes to bass in 1996. It is located in the traditional jazz and swing, with clear influences from Ray Brown, Jimmy Blanton and Christian Mcbride.
She has recorded 10 CDs with different bands, and performed at jazz cycles and national and international jazz festivals since 1999.
She had the opportunity to accompany Gene Connors, Charmin Michelle and Carrie Smith, Txavolo Smith, Sebastian Ginaux has collaborated with musicians and groups such as Barcelona Jazz Orchestra, Ignasi Terraza Trio, Jay Wallis, Juli Aymí Piero Cozzi, Andre Kitaev, Toni Sola ,, Ricard Gili, Gemma Abrié, among others; and is currently the bassist on the next bands: Triple Treat, Shakin All, Bumpy Roof Band, Barcelona Swing Serenaders, Albert Bello trio, Atomic Swing Five,

David Mitchell (Kansas city,1958) is a jazz guitarist resident in Barcelona.he’s playing has influencesfrom the great guitarists in the jazz tradition, such as Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Grant Green, Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian, Tal Farlow. He built a style with a strong connection to the blues and bebop language.
Appears in 15 CDs under his own name and several accompanying instrumentalists and singers.
He had the opportunity to play with musicians like Frank Wess, Slide Hampton, Peter Bernstein, Scott Hamilton, Dena DeRose, Terell Stafford, Lou Donaldson, Lonnie Smith, Bobby Shew and Jack McDuff.

Italy’s great musical archaeologist and one of the outstanding improvisers of his country, Gianluigi Trovesi with “Profumo di Violetta” indulges in his love for the emotional drama and musical beauty of Italian opera. (The title simultaneously alludes to the protagonist of Verdi’s famous opera “La traviata” and to the flower’s sweet perfume.) Accompanied by the characteristic North-Italian provincial “banda”, a large wind orchestra with percussion as we find it in the on-stage-music of most Verdi operas, Trovesi takes us on a humorous journey through the history of the genre. It starts with Monteverdi’s “Orfeo”, includes many highlights from “La traviata” before briefly visiting Mascagni and Puccini. The popular and the sublime, irony and unrestrained pathos meet with an improvisational spirit that conveys the pure joy of music making. One of the most unorthodox albums in this year’s release schedule, Trovesi’s opera project is likely to win many enthusiastic listeners among opera lovers and open-minded jazz enthusiasts.

Esoteric Egyptologists remind us that hieroglyphics are not simply a primitive form of writing, but rather contain an entirely higher form of resonant meaning. Schwaller de Lubicz said, "Each heiroglyphic can have an arrested, conventional meaning for common usage, but it includes all the ideas that can be connected to it as well as the possibility of personal comprehension." This I think, is the essence of Matt Lavelle's music. Fear Has Got to Go is a case in point.

On hearing Lavelle's music for the first time the listener is enveloped in a sense of a deep story told, even before any intellectual grasp of where the music is going. This reminds us that T.S. Elliot said that true poetry can communicate before it is understood. That is not to say Lavelle's melodies are in anyway arcane. They are deeply rooted the trajectory of the blues from Ellington, through Ornette to the legendary musicians with whom Lavelle has apprenticed.

Let it be said loud and clear, this recording with Matt's quartet is a jazz record. Having recruited Dr. Lewis Porter on piano, Hilliard Greene on bass and Tom Cabrera on drums, clearly Lavelle wanted to make music that swings with a vengeance. And it does. The track Matt Bop is astonishing in its raw swing that emits spirals of associated past and future shapes from the jazz continuum.

As welcoming and universal this music from the Matt Lavelle Quartet is, it is at the level of the personal that it hits home with the tracks For Taps, Matt's Mode, No More Shootings and Tamir Rice.

Elliott Sharp: Guitar
Mary Halvorson: Guitar
Marc Ribot: Guitar
 
Elliott Sharp doesn’t inspire persistence in fence-sitters. His guitar antics and antagonisms are cataloged at length thanks mainly to an emphasis on output largely unperturbed by market saturation. He’s also admirably open-minded toward collaboration, willing to team his strings with receptive partners of virtually any artistic stripe as long as improvisation is agreed upon as a shared idiomatic priority. All the activity has also led to a sometimes vocal contingent of detractors, but Sharp hardly seems to care, carrying on at his prolific pace without missing a step or a gig. Credence to stock placed in him by the other side of the divide, Err Guitar teams him with two other iconoclastic string benders who continue to stay enviably active while weathering the blowback from hype machines beyond their own creation.

Marc Ribot’s been a professional guitar provocateur for going on four decades (his Jewish agitprop album Yo! I Killed Your God still has the ability to arch uninitiated eyebrows). Mary Halvorson is younger in years, but a friendly rival in terms of prolific activity and the diversity of the projects with which she aligns. Summoned at separate times to a Manhattan studio in the summer of last year, they join Sharp in bringing a loose folio of pieces to life together in duo pairings, solos and several after-the-fact trios. Neither Ribot nor Halvorson are FX-averse, although their own work tends to use amplified ornamentations sparingly rather than avenues to excess. “Blindspot” fires the first ensemble salvo with a three-way tangle of brittle, recalcitrant and resonant strings, by turns garbled and luminous riffs spilling out in Doppler-tapered arcs. Who’s doing exactly what quickly becomes secondary to servicing the slideshow of transitory, transistorized manipulations.

Halvorson’s “The Ship I Am On” and Ribot’s “I’m Gonna Party Like It’s 1988” are the only pieces credited to a single composer other than the two Sharp tracks that close the set. All, but the finale “Kernel Panic”, which works off a graphic score for temporally-displaced trio, appear to be solo, but given the original parameters of the project it’s sometimes difficult to tell. What becomes abundantly apparent when contrasting each are the strong personalities of each of the musicians. Ribot attacks his strings with minimal amplification, sounding almost acoustic in his caustic, sharply angled picking. Halvorson goes with a bit more juice and adds loops to create an ouroboros-like rondo of riffs. Sharp’s “Nektone” revels in acid-dipped string treatments, tonality bending and morphing with a constancy that almost seems like overkill by comparison to the restraints exercised by his colleagues.

Duos make up the bulk of the disc though, and there’s some fine interplay along these lines. “Wobbly” contains jagged acoustic jousting between Sharp and Ribot, each player eking out ghostly string harmonics amidst hardscrabble plucking and scraping. The two-part pitch-bending “Sequoia” felled in concert with Halvorson offers a spare, vertical forest of staggered drones and pointed picking given heft and girth by the natural acoustics of the studio space. Intimations of the late Derek Bailey are rife in the at times frenetic back and forth of ricocheting strums and fractured arpeggios. “Sea Buzz” trades in aqueous variations of the same with each player adding a gloss of electricity to the squiggling, rippling thicket of bent and twisted tones. Sharp was definitely on to something in his choice of partners, preferring as always to explode the aforementioned fence rather than dutifully paint it.

Englewood Cliffs, NJ, January 23, 1995
 
Cindy Blackman's one of those players who always surprises us with her music – coming across with a lot more to offer than just her unique role as a girl drummer in jazz – sounds so bold, we instantly forget her gender and pretty image on the cover, and always just let ourselves get swept away by the power of her music! This set is possibly one of Blackman's best from the Muse Records years – thanks to a top-shelf quartet that includes Gary Bartz on alto and soprano sax, Kenny Barron on piano, and Ron Carter on bass – a great trio even on their own, but given a nice sense of focus through Blackman's drums. As usual, Blackman penned some great originals for the date – and the setting is an especially nice one for Bartz, who's really given a lot of space for great solo work on the set. Titles include "The Oracle", "AJ", "Beatrice", "Traffic", "Why", "Our Blues", and "Who Needs Forever". - review from Dusty Groove America

Misha Mullov-Abbado - Cross-Platform Interchange (2017)

02. No Strictly Dancing (6:32)
03. Waves (11:07)
04. Gromit's Grand Outing (5:16)

06. Pure 100% Nunnery (7:05)
07. Cross-Platform Interchange (7:49)
08. Hair Of The Bop (7:31)

Personnel: Misha Mullov-Abbado: double bass; James Davison: trumpet; Matthew Herd: alto saxophone; Sam Rapley: tenor saxophone; Liam Dunachie: piano; Scott Chapman: drums; Elad Neeman: percussion. Plus: Nick Goodwin: acoustic guitar (2 and 8); Rob Luft: electric guitar (3,5 and 7); Matthew Barley: cello (3); Yusuf Narcin: bass trombone (7).
 
As the son of the Italian classical conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, music was inevitably in British bassist Misha Mullov-Abbado's blood. After graduating in music and composition from Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge he won a scholarship to study double bass at the Royal Academy of Music on its Masters jazz course tutored by virtuosos Jasper Høiby and Michael Janisch amongst others. Cross-Platform Interchange is the follow-up to Mullov- Abbado's 2015 debut album New Ansonia, also on Edition Records.

In this chocolate box selection with thankfully no hard centres, Mullov-Abbado's opening salvo is "Shanti Bell," a blues- inflected double bass outing backed by subtle and unobtrusive percussion. This is followed by "No Strictly Dancing," the main theme of which already seems familiar. Sharing a passing resemblance to "Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye" aka "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," its vitality and complexity develop in ensemble passages providing ample opportunity for strident trumpet soloing from James Davison.

Following on from the pastoral "Waves" comes the semi-pastiche of "Gromit's Grand Outing." Semi, because there are some seriously deft arrangements amongst the historical/hysterical references. In direct contrast, "Still, Hidden Morning" is an ambient acid jazz outing that imbues positively mesmeric qualities.

The smoky "Pure 100% Nunnery" again delves back into jazz's rich past courtesy of an augmented New Orleans style blues which gradually descends into mayhem before resolving once more into the catchy vamp and a corny ending. The soulful title track which benefits from luxuriant ensemble brass is followed by a lively, Latin-tinged "Hair Of The Bop," opening with a brisk double bass solo from Mullov-Abbado and ensued by a memorable ensemble melody.

Cross-Platform Interchange is a remarkably mature and accessible album, possessing both originality and variety. There's a touch of Mingusian similitude in many of the arrangements and compositions, which actually adds to their overall appeal. To follow in the footsteps of an innovative and legendary bass-playing bandleader and composer is obviously no bad thing but Mullov-Abbado already possesses his own unique musical vocabulary. Expect more surprises and delights from Mullov-Abbado in albums to come.

King Curtis and his bubbling, stutter-style tenor sax playing brought a touch of jazz and a whole ton of R&B to countless rock & roll tracks in the early '60s, and his funky edge is one of the reasons records by the Coasters, for instance, continue to sound good 40 years later. This collection brings together a nice set of solo Curtis singles, kicking off with his first hit, "Soul Twist," and its B-side, "Twisting Time," which came out on Enjoy Records in 1962. Curtis was a more versatile musician than many people realize (he did sessions with artists as varied as Lonnie Donegan and Andy Williams, and shows it here by going sans sax, playing a solid electric guitar and handling the vocals on a two-part version of the Ray Charles classic "What'd I Say." Curtis shows himself right at home in Memphis soul territory, too, with the Booker T. & the MG's-styled "Hot Potato (Piping Hot)." The haunting and slightly ominous instrumental "Midnight Blue" is another highlight included here, although one wishes room could have been found for one of Curtis' best tunes, "Soul Serenade," which featured Curtis on saxello. That omission aside, King of the Sax makes for a fine introduction to this extraordinary musician.
 

Justin Vasquez ‎- Triptych (2009)

Tracklist:
1 Triptych
2 Nimbus
3 Invitation
4 Fields
5 One & Only
6 Red. Green. Blue
7 End Of The Day
8 Stella By Starlight
 
Personnel: Justin Vasquez: alto and soprano saxophones; Clarence Penn: drums; Orlando La Fleming: bass; Adam Rogers: guitar; Aaron Parks: piano; Gregoire Maret: harmonica; Gretchen Parlato: vocals; John Ellis: bass clarinet (4).
 
Young saxophonist Justin Vasquez acquits himself assertively on this 2009 debut, adapting the model of the tough Texas tenors to his own assiduous Austin alto. But that convenient alliterative to Vasquez's lone star origins belies his true lineage in the modern, slashing altoist mold carved out by the likes of David Binney,Greg Osby, Steve Coleman and Kenny Garrett.

Possessing all the firepower necessary to fuel an over-the-top debut, Vasquez upped the ante by exercising restraint, pulling together a band full of likewise ripping yet refined players. But it's the presence of guitarist Adam Rogers, in a compelling sideman appearance exceeding the consistently exceptional level that makes him New York's premier sessioneer, that lifts the game of all assembled.

The kickoff title provides ample evidence that the entire unit treated this as more than a session, displaying exceptionally tight ensemble work exceeding that of many bands. A cyclical, kinetic progression in seven is stated by Aaron Parks on piano, but a contrary, much prettier, melodic line undulates voluptuously over the jagged accompaniment. In another surprise, Vasquez wisely concedes the first statement of the melody to the remarkable instrument possessed by vocalist Gretchen Parlato. No wonder, as he reserves the right to complicate matters in a heavy unison passage phrased with Rogers in the bridge section. Picking up the solo section on a big exhale, Rogers doesn't take long to unfurl imposing lines like kite twine unraveling from the wind supplied by Parks' comping and drummer Clarence Penn's exhortations. Rogers' lines have a presence and precision that projects off the fretboard and out of the speakers, even over drums placed high in the mix, because of a right hand technique so efficient that air pops as though his pick possesses its own piezo-pickup.

Not one to back down, Vasquez uncorks his own winner, hanging on the long tones before unleashing a volley of his own, using more scalar than chromatic phrases over the vamp section. Bop is in his vocabulary as well, as emphasized on "Nimbus," a composition stemming from, but providing a twist on the modal tradition. Rogers activates the afterburners immediately in a stunning turn, demonstrating nothing less than the modern-day state of bop guitar. Vasquez's take is again less bop than line based, highlighting an advanced pentatonic vocabulary.

"Fields" is another captivating composition, moving through several related sections, increasing in emotive content throughout, utilizing different combinations of front-line horns, including Vasquez on soprano, John Ellis on bass clarinet and Gregoire Maret on harmonica. Parks' patient solo, growing melodically and organically out of the song, plays a critical part in the development of the composition. Finally, Rogers' crystalline steel strumming floats out Ellis' pleasingly low restatement of the melody, which seamlessly transforms into Vasquez' screaming soprano climax.

The conceptual thrust and modern sound of Vasquez, combined with a committed assembled cast, especially the invaluable contributions of Rogers, pushes this into the category of essential debuts.

... The public, soon to be the audience, come in and take their seats and almost imperceptibly the light fades away. A rather strange sensation grips everyone and finally they find themselves shrouded in total darkness. Everything familiar vanishes: the clink of glasses, the buzz of conversation, people coming and going... a new unknown and unexplored world is being created. The music begins...

German-born bassist Martin Wind has had an extensive career as a sideman. His fourth CD as a leader (and third for Challenge) is his best effort to date, featuring pianist Bill Cunliffe, multi-instrumentalist Scott Robinson (who restricts himself to only three here) and drummer Greg Hutchinson.

Most of the CD focuses on Wind’s striking originals. “Remember Oct. 13th” salutes the birthday of the late great bassist Ray Brown, though its

unusual blending of arco bass with Robinson’s vocal-like bass clarinet nods in the direction of Eric Dolphy as well. The constantly shifting “Mr. Friesen” salutes the virtuoso cellist Eugene Friesen (a long time member of the Paul Winter Consort) and is another potent feature for Robinson’s bass clarinet, with Wind playing both pizzicato and arco, a post-bop vehicle with a Latin undercurrent. The intimate, impressionistic ballad “The Dream” showcases Cunliffe, Robinson (on tenor sax) and the leader, with a late shift into a bossa nova setting near its conclusion. The title of “The Cruise Blues” is a bit misleading, as it is a lush feature for Robinson, who seems to be channeling Stan Getz on his tenor.

Wind proves himself just as effective playing other’s songs. The bassist recasts “Bright Mississippi", Thelonious Monk’s playful reworking of “Sweet Georgia Brown," as a fun-filled calypso and the CD concludes with Wind’s spirit-filled rendition of Duke Ellington’s powerful “Come Sunday,” with Robinson incorporating a bit of alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges into his tenor solo. The one thing missing from this outstanding CD is explanatory liner notes.
