A Prayer for Lester Bowie

David Sanford Big Band

Jazz - Released September 24, 2021 | Greenleaf Music

Hi-Res Booklet
Composer and trombonist David Sanford displays his broad-minded approach to large ensemble jazz with his dynamic big band album, 2021's A Prayer For Lester Bowie. The album finds him joined by a cadre of boundary-pushing performers including trumpeter Hugh Ragin, whose title-track composition works as the album's central thematic piece. There are also equally engaging improvisational contributions by players like trombonist Mike Christianson, trumpeter Brad Goode, tenor saxophonist Anna Webber, alto saxophonist Ted Levine, and guitarist Dave Fabris, among others. Primarily, A Prayer For Lester Bowie is a showcase for Sanford's boldly textural and harmonically daring composition and arranging skills, talents he first honed at the University of Colorado, then at New England Conservatory, and finally at Princeton where he earned his doctorate on a Guggenheim Fellowship. Here, he displays his exuberant style, drawing upon such wide-ranging influences as Charles Mingus, Arnold Schöenberg, Parliament-Funkadelic, and more. Its an approach that allows for both straight-ahead moments like his thrilling reworking of Dizzy Gillespie's bop work-out "Dizzy Atmosphere," as well as more outre pieces, including the Ragin-penned title track and the dissonant and bluesy "Substraf," both of which conjure the sprawling cacophony of the late-trumpeter Lester Bowie's work with the Art Ensemble of Chicago. He also contrasts brassy teutonic harmonies with funk bass grooves and distorted guitar riffs on "Popit" and "The Soldier and the CEO," a sound that evokes both Miles Davis' fusion-era Agharta album and the Afro-centric punk of band's like Bad Brains and Living Colour. Elsewhere, he plays with dusky film noir tropes on "Woman in the Shadows" and even draws inspiration from his love of rollercoasters, crafting a funky, contrapuntal fun ride on "V-Reel." Listening to A Prayer for Lester Bowie, it's hard not to reflect on the trumpeter himself. A sonic innovator and avant-garde trickster, Bowie (who died from liver cancer in 1999) emerged in the '60s and helped to expand not just the idiom of jazz, but also what sounds a trumpet can acceptably make. He always took the music, but never himself too seriously, even as he fused together free jazz with gospel, African traditions, funk, and pop music. For Sanford and Ragin, he is a creative paradigm and A Prayer for Lester Bowie isn't just a celebration of that legacy, but a wildy charismatic expression of it. © Matt Collar /TiVo

Other Worlds

Joe Lovano

Jazz - Released May 7, 2021 | Greenleaf Music

Hi-Res
Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas launched Sound Prints in 2013, the year of Wayne Shorter's 80th birthday. Since then, the saxophonist and trumpeter have set themselves the mission of celebrating their illustrious elder by writing and performing new music that they think expresses his creative and fearless spirit. With a multigenerational cast made up of pianist Lawrence Fields, bassist Linda May Han Oh and drummer Joey Baron, this virtuoso quintet released the thrilling Sound Prints: Live at Monterey Jazz Festival, which included the world premiere of two new themes by Shorter. The 2018 album Scandal saw the same line-up taking on brand-new themes from Lovano and Douglas, along with new takes on JuJu and Fee Fi Fo Fum, two masterpieces from Shorter's Blue Note period. Other Worlds, recorded in the wake of a week on stage at the prestigious Village Vanguard in New York in January 2020, has the Sound Prints quintet delivering some solid original compositions. Although there is no material from Wayne Shorter here this time around, the spirit and philosophy of Miles Davis's former sideman are still very much present. The powerful chemistry between the bandmates fizzes at every turn. This is further explained when Douglas describes his vision: "the whole concept of the band is dialogue and interaction, and when you play that way, nobody can retreat into the role of their instrument. Everybody's playing everything, all the time." This total commitment is what underpins the success of Other Worlds, which manages to celebrate the genius of Wayne Shorter without ever being too precious or obsequious about it. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
