OCTOBER TRIO + BRAD TURNER: Looks like it’s going to snow
Songlines, 2009

MODERN JAZZ – Young sax/bass/drum trio out of Vancouver teams up with Turner, an incisive trumpeter, for a strong, forward-thinking set. But this isn’t a one-off collaboration: the tunes were worked out over the course of a year. The two horns have a wonderful, seamless flow, and when the rhythm opens up to match the results just sparkle.

Evan Arntzen - tenor sax
Brad Turner - trumpet/flugelhorn
Josh Cole - bass
Dan Gaucher - drums

* * * * | All tracks good. Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 5, 7, 8, 10

1. 6:06 – chugging tune: densely layered horn dialogue, thudding bass solo
2. 5:58 – sounds like a converted pop song: bright trumpet, thoughtful sax
3. 6:06 – horns chatter & dance together over a steady, pulsating beat
4. 0:49 – noisy free-jazz interlude
5. 8:16 –flowing avant-garde horn duet, adds moody bass & metronome beat
6. 1:42 – scattered free-jazz interlude, picks up a sort of groove
7. 8:03 – sinuous drum/bass intro, then a moody flow with ambiguous pacing
8. 3:06 – horn melody morphs into bubbling, expanding mass, deflates rapidly
9. 16:37 – 3-part suite: bass riff holds the center against loose horns & agile drums… wide open middle section… calmly melodic ending
10. 3:51 – slow and deep: dark colors offset by glowing trumpet
