Product description

Product Description

Bassist/composer Matt Penman has spent much of the past decade working with the illustrious SFJazz Collective (Nonesuch) and the fantastic James Farm collective. That had left a gap between solo recordings that he felt it was time to abate. The result is 'Good Question', a poignant recording of pieces meant to challenge, engage and entertain both its listeners and the musicians involved in its creation.

The ensemble that Penman assembled features not only the top musicians in jazz but also his regular collaborators and friends, including saxophonist Mark Turner, pianist Aaron Parks and drummer Obed Calvaire. There are also guest appearances by guitarist Nir Felder, saxophonist Will Vinson and percussionist Rogerio Boccato.

Penman's compositions are meant to stimulate the ensemble into reactions and conversations within their framework. The pieces either present musical puzzles or are think pieces for reflection on topics, mainly natural or political. The ensemble handled the task with aplomb over three days of recording at Brooklyn Recording during the spring and summer of 2017.

Personnel: Matt Penman (bass), Mark Turner (tenor saxophone), Aaron Parks (piano, Rhodes, organ, vibraphone), Obed Calvaire (drums), Nir Felder (guitar - 6 & 9), Will Vinson (soprano saxophone), Rogerio Boccato (percussion -3)
