Hi-Res Booklet
In 2016, Andrew Cyrille brought out an album with a powerfully unambiguous title: The Declaration Of Musical Independence. This was no surprise, coming from a free jazz militant who insists on authentic material direct from the source, and who has worked alongside some of the biggest names on the scene such as Cecil Taylor, Anthony Braxton, Marion Brown, Walt Dickerson, Charlie Haden, Carla Bley, Oliver Lake and Horace Tapscott… Two years on, the New York drummer has brought in Bill Frisell for Lebroba, this time as part of a trio, with trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith. The album's title is a contraction of the names of the three men's home towns: Leland, Brooklyn and Baltimore. Their idea is undoubtedly to democratically divide responsibility and Cyrille let’s his bandmates work in whichever way they see fit. Even the writing is shared out between these three avant-garde jazz masters. The meditative tone of the work here is set by the track Turiya, dedicated to Alice Coltrane. The whole album is a kind of celebration of space and time... Lebroba will leave you feeling like you’re floating across a sublime bluesy landscape. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Considering the musicians who are involved, it is often surprising how gentle and melodic this music is. Guitarist Alix Pascal is a new voice with a quiet sound, while flutist James Newton, bassist Anthony Cox, and drummer Andrew Cyrille have long been known for their versatility, open-minded approach to improvising, and high musicianship. Each player contributed two songs apiece, and the soloing is pretty democratic, with each musician having their opportunity to shine both as a soloist and in the ensembles. This is a subtle set that grows more interesting with each listen. ~ Scott Yanow
