Golden Beams, 2009

MODERN JAZZ – Marvelously engaging drum/piano/bass trio, a mix of tricky original compositions and group improvisations with tightly woven interplay. Strikes a great balance between expansiveness and intimacy; there are lots of overdubs but they don’t get in the way at all.

Jack DeJohnette - drums, melodica
John Patitucci - electric & acoustic bass
Danilo Perez - piano, keyboard

* * * * | Fo’s Picks: 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10

1. 5:29 – uptempo, gypsy theme on melodica; playful, dreamy, but repetitive.
2. 7:10 – wintry improvisation into lovely meditative ballad, intimate & sad
3. 5:34 – rhythmically dense: great drums, piano romps & dodges
4. 4:34 – hip stroll becomes a series of fits and starts; improvisational feel
5. 3:51 – steady piano/melodica turns tender, then starkly melancholy
6. 5:00 – mysterious: low drums & stabbing piano, then sparse atmosphere
7. 6:19 – uptempo, busy rhythm, cool and energetic with some heavy riffing
8. 5:00 – floating ballad, romantic and bittersweet
9. 5:43 – a study in contrast: catchy rhythm, keyboard friction, eloquent bass
10. 9:34 – quiet, spacious improv gradually locks into a sort of strut
11. 3:50 – warm, pleasing ballad with vague edges, draws light from drums
