JOE MARTIN: Not By Chance
Anzic, 2009

MODERN JAZZ – Bassist Martin leads a top-flight all star quartet in a very satisfying set of modern mainstream jazz. Martin’s tunes tend to have three layers: catchy, in the pocket grooves underpin warm, softly constructed melodies, which turn to propulsive flights in the solos.

Joe Martin - bass
Chris Potter - saxophones
Brad Mehldau - piano
Marcus Gilmore - drums

* * * * | All pretty good. Fo’s Picks: 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9

1. 8:48 – warm, upbeat over wide pendulum-swing groove; deepens as it goes
2. 8:35 – bright modern-bop ride with twisty sax and a cool, catchy groove
3. 8:24 – great rhythm section; blends a breezy theme & a hard-edged chase
4. 9:20 – reflective ballad takes flight: introspective sax, lush drums & piano
5. 3:52 – 12-tone exercise: hops swiftly up and down the scale; open interlude
6. 7:12 – tough stroll: blue-tinted sax, lilting piano, walking bass
7. 6:03 – chamber-string intro, then a flowing groove; very nice bass solo here
8. 8:14 – relaxed tempo, a bit serious-sounding with soprano sax & latin touch
9. 8:37 – firm, resolute feel: introspective, cerebral melody, eloquent bass solo
