Astonishments ... CD Rogue Art (France), 2020. New Copy ...
Out Of Stock
One of the most righteous albums we've ever heard from trombonist SteveSwell – a great follow-up to his SoulTravelers album – and, like that one, done in this majestic mode that hearkens back to the hippest sounds of the loft jazz years! Swell's group is fantastic – with Jemeel Moondoc on alto, Dave Burrell on piano, William Parker on bass, and Gerald Cleaver on drums – and Leena Conquest is on a number of tracks on voice, but reciting some very hip material, instead of singing – a side of her talents that's even more powerful than before, and which really helps shape the tension between structure and freedom in the tunes! Titles include "Sketch 7", "Seldom Heard", "For Mondays", "Being Here", "Morphogenesis", and "Astonishments". CD
