HARRIS EISENSTADT SEPTEMBER TRIO: The Destructive Element
Clean Feed, 2013

AVANT-MODERN JAZZ – Here’s an unusual project from drummer Eisenstadt: an adventurous trio that can play “out” yet specializes in ballads (but don’t get me wrong, there’s lots of variety in pace and rhythm here). Ellery Eskelin’s warped yet accessible tenor tone is perfect for this group, bouncing off or merging with Angelia Sanchez’s enigmatic piano phrases and Eisenstadt’s ever-moving rhythmic base.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9

1. 4:23 – sax mopes: a cool but anguished blues over trudging rhythm
2. 6:20 – uptempo: repeatedly fractures or spins out but always reunites
3. 7:40 – adapted from a Schoenberg concerto: mixes tense push/pull themes with stretches conversational trio interplay
4. 7:01 – relatively straightforward ballad but with odd harmony, rises slowly
5. 6:18 – sax stretches out over mysterious spiral, piano gets dense & twisty
6. 2:36 – melancholy ballad, with turbulence at the edges
7. 6:48 – busy solo piano leads into quiet, stretched-out ballad, fluttering sax
8. 4:24 – continuation of #3’s idea, less dramatic and with a repetitive riff
9. 4:01 – ominous: drums roll under unison sax/piano statements, tight improv
