✨✧ Harris Eisenstadt/Mivos QuartetWhatever Will Happen That Will Also Be ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful combination of talents – the compositional work of Harris Eisenstadt, and the dynamic performance range of the Mivos Quartet – who bring life to Eisenstadt's music in a way that you'd never hear on his own records! The combination of a jazz talent and a string quartet is nothing new – but here, the group really seems to understand that wider, almost cinematic vision that Harris can have at times in his own performances – then extrapolate it beautifully to their lineup of two violins, viola, and cello. In other words, Harris doesn't play on the record – but the group really seems to evoke his spirit in their own sounds, although completely different – playing with undeniable beauty as the title suite unfolds over the course of the album.

✨✧ Convergence Quartet (Bynum/Hawkins/Lash/EisenstadtSlow & Steady ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. Used ... $9.99
The sounds are definitely convergent here – very individual strands from all the musicians, but each finding space to come together in a really beautiful way! The album's got a great balance between improvised moments and more compositional impulses – a balance that's not unlike that moment when modern jazz was reaching for new freedoms in the 60s, yet still able to come back to the idea of unified group energy – perhaps a bit like Ornette Coleman in his post-Atlantic years, or the work of the west coast underground. The players really have a great feel for each other – and the quartet features Taylor Ho Bynum on cornet, Alexander Hawkins on piano, Dominic Lash on bass, and Harris Eisenstadt on drums – on titles that include "Assemble/Melancholy", "Remember Raoul", "The Taff End", "Slow & Steady", and "Oat Roe + Three By Three".
