Product description

Review

New York alto saxophonist and composer Steve Lehman provided some of last year's lasting jazz excitements both live and on disc, with his virtuosic, mathematically precise new music that had both contemporary-classical and street-sharp undercurrents. However, Lehman's music can sound overly scientific to some - so this unexpectedly rootsy and frequently hard-swinging set, with its scattering of standard songs, might be the ideal solution. Partnered by the powerful bass/drums duo of Matt Brewer and Damion Reid, Lehman mixes originals, such as the rigorously measured Alloy, with hard-bop jazz classics like John Coltrane's Moment's Notice, Duke Pearson's Jeannine and Jackie McLean's Mr E. There's even a showtune, the Anthony Newley hit Pure Imagination, hosed down with skimming uptempo lines and the yearning abrasiveness of Albert Ayler over a thumping bass-walk. Lehman sometimes operates in a keening, sweet-and-sour world between western pitches (as on the multiphonic Allocentric), but often with a coolly lubricated jazz fluency like Lee Konitz or the late Warne Marsh, as he does on an exhilarating Moment's Notice, but Brewer's booming bass sound and Reid's bumpy drive Makes Jeannine probably the standout track FOUR STARS --The Guardian

The trio format is one of the sternest tests of a saxophonist s mettle, where very note counts and creativity is stretched to the limit, but New York composer and altoist Steve Lehman is more than up to the challenge. A respected educator and one of the most radical ideologues of the contemporary American scene, he has put his music where his mouth is with a string of releases that explore a wide and adventurous palette, from solo electronica to daring ensemble writing. Here he strips things right back, with powerful assistance from drummer Damon Reid and bassist Matt Brewer. Alongside Lehman s own knotty, complex but never obtuse compositions are choice standards from some of his key influences, including Jackie McLean s Mr E and Coltrane s Moment s Notice. It s top-drawer improvisation from beginning to end, and will add further lustre to the reputations of the musicians and of rising independent label, Pi Recordings. FOUR STARS --Irish Times
