Product Description

Product Description

The second ECM album by the Billy Hart Quartet is a major musical statement, and one of the outstanding jazz albums of the season. The group's reach - already broad on 2011's widely-acclaimed All Our Reasons - is yet more expansive here. Strong compositions - by leader-drummer Hart, tenorist Mark Turner and pianist Ethan Iverson - reflect upon a wide swathe of the music's history, and are distinguished by vivid and imaginative solos and wonderful interplay.

A basic premise, that this should be a band in which the vastly-experienced Billy Hart gets to play everything he wants to play, has led to a sense of almost unlimited possibility for all participants. There is freedom and joy in this music, and tenderness, too, not least in the set's sole standard, a beautifully-played version of "Some Enchanted Evening".

Billy Hart was there, right on the scene, when jazz began embracing the even-eighth note as a legitimate resource. On this album, his composition "Yard", a blues, connects Charlie Parker with all those grooves Hart played with Jimmy Smith, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, and so many others, and the level of abstraction achieved by every member of the group attests to a long working relationship.

One is the Other was recorded in New York in 2013, and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Personnel: Mark Turner (tenor saxophone), Ethan Iverson (piano), Ben Street (double bass), Billy Hart (drums)


(5 stars) The fact that this is a working band is apparent throughout the programme in the rarefied, unbelievably subtle interplay - a mark of deep listening, intuition and so much more. --Jazz Journal, (Nic Jones), June 2014

(4 stars) For anyone open to spontaneous musical conversation, regardless of genre, this beautifully crafted album is likely to appeal - but aficionados will probably get more from it, since veteran drum star and former Herbie Hancock sideman Hart and his superb quartet constantly hint at references from all over the jazz tradition. --The Guardian, (John Fordham), March 14, 2014

(4 stars) Anybody who missed 2012's gorgeous All Our Reasons should use this equally beautiful offering as a chance to catch up...grand lyricism and potent emotional change. --Jazzwise, (Kevin Le Gendre), April 2014

(4 stars) It's a lovely album, warm, varied and full of elastic rhythms, rich harmonies and intense interplay featuring Turner's devious, whispy and emotional tenor sax lines twisting round pianist Iverson's imaginative support. --Financial Times, (Mike Hobart), March 29, 2014

(4 stars) Pianist Ethan Iverson accompanies saxophonist Mark Turner quite beautifully on 'Sonnet for Stevie' where Hart's time keeping and deftly sublimated swing amount to something to savour. --Marlbank, (Stephen Graham), March 1, 2014

This is be music that I find quite complex and at times difficult to listen to and understand. However repeated plays has helped me to begin to appreciate what's going on. I'm a fan of all the players and have albums by them all as well as this bands previous album and in some ways this is an album which is more than than the sum of it's parts - which is something indeed.

A well established quartet, and it shows in this disc. Usual impeccable ECM recording, and stellar playing. Mark Turner and Ethan Iverson are among the most creative musicians around today.

Billy Hart had found a great quartet. Mark Turner on sax, Ethan Iverson on piano, Ben Street on bass and Billy on drums. Like the previous album in ECM but less darkness, this is a really good jazz CD. The balance between the musician is perfect and the music intensive and introspective. Some times the equilibrium is perfect. Turner is specially good in this album and Hart is the ideal conductor of all the music feeling. A great jazz album, you must hear it.

Delightful 6 Mar. 2014
By Kerr - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Highly recommended. I own both of this group's prior albums, and this is by far my favorite. It's incredibly fluent, and it really swings.

Mark Turner's playing is particularly notable on this CD. Turner is always excellent, but this performance was more accessible here than some of his recent recordings. I was reminded of his incredible recordings on the Warner Brothers label in the late 1990s and early 2000s, such as Dharma Days and In This World (which also features the first tune on this CD, Lennie's Groove). Great stuff.

Another Winner From The Billy Hart Quartet 28 May 2014
By alan - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you like progressive jazz that has elements of freedom but not totally free, this is the recording for you. The exception here is Roger and Hammerstein's Some Enchanted Evening, which sticks close to the melody.

Great stuff by Hart & company 25 Jan. 2015
By G B - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Of this group's two ECM albums (there's also an earlier album on Highnote), I'd narrowly give this one the gold medal. In particular, there are two outstanding Mark Turner compositions here which are given excellent performances - the tongue-twisting "Lennie Groove" and the deeply soulful "Sonnet for Stevie" (you can hear a very different version of this one on Turner's own album, LATHE OF HEAVEN). Aside from Turner's tunes, you also have three tunes by Hart and two by pianist Ethan Iverson, all of which are excellent - and the standard "One Enchanted Evening", given a lovely reading here. As with the earlier ALL OUR REASONS, this album is fairly "straight-ahead" by ECM standards, though less gritty than Hart's earlier recordings. Highly recommended!

More of Billy Hart on this CD than the previous one with the group. A wonderful combination of musicians. Great.
