Sunnyside, 2009

MODERN JAZZ – Drummer Hollenbeck’s cutting-edge 20-piece band brings together a formidable cast of “downtown” musicians in startling, labyrinthine arrangements that blaze with cold fire. There are a lot of big bands pushing envelopes these days, but this is one of the best: steely and with the complex, interlocking movements of a Swiss watch.

* * * * * | All impressive. Fo’s Picks: 1, 3, 4

1. 09:14 – abstract, clockwork reworking of T. Monk tune, flaring & geometric
2. 19:05 – slow, orchestral and cinematic: like a kaleidoscope, dappled with a spectrum of tonal colors as it drifts… speeds up towards the end
3. 08:31 – a grand sweep: accelerating parallel streams chatter at each other
4. 13:01 – vocalist Theo Bleckmann intones slow mantra and recites religious text over pretty, jewel-like melodic flashes and serious horns
5. 17:45 – busy, churning excitement: sax twists & honks, then drifts in outer space for several minutes; excellent scattered drum solo, then bright percolating horns; comes home with a calm, warm glow
6. 01:56 – slow, ethereal horns & voice
