Bassist Jason Ajemian composed these 8 works performed with the Chicago/NY band of Tony Malaby on tenor sax, Rob Mazurek on cornet & electronics, and Chad Taylor on drums, a dynamic set of music that varies through a spectrum of styles while staying true to its jazz roots.
"Jason Ajemian can always be counted on to offer up way more than just the usual set of avant and improvised music – and as with some of his other recent albums, this set shows a range of imagination that just seems to be growing bolder in the past few years! The music is very carefully conceived, but also has the freshness of spontaneous improvisation as well – with a shifting sense of scope and time that makes the record way more than just the usual set of this nature – and instead this rich palette of sounds and ideas that keeps things compelling throughout! Some moments are spare and thoughtful, others snapping with a bit of a swing, and still others have a more aggressive improvised feel – music played by a very well-matched quartet that includes Rob Mazurek on cornet and electronics (Ajemian plays some electronics too), Tony Malaby on tenor, and Chad Taylor on drums."
