Q.E.D.: Yet What Is Any Ocean…
Origin, 2010

MODERN JAZZ – Interesting trio from Seattle (vibes/trombone/piano plus various percussion) incorporating a variety of Latin American rhythms into a mostly sunny (but sometimes bittersweet) chamber-jazz sound. It’s a highly appealing combination, and I can’t think of any other group that sounds quite like it. Definitely worth a spin.

Ben Thomas : vibes, cajon, bandoneon, percussion
Chris Stover : trombone, congas, chekere
Alex Chadsey : piano

Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 5, 8, 9

1. 8:36 – warm, upbeat: trombone roams over bright vibes/piano, light percussion
2. 5:27 – sparkling piano leads into a slow conga-led procession, serious flow
3. 4:48 – bright, happy groove: solos skip merrily over light perc & solid piano
4. 5:08 – tango-inflected: slow and melancholy, with bandoneon; tragic touches
5. 6:12 – upbeat, rhythmic: groove pushes forward, familiar melody & good solos
6. 6:27 – slow, sighing melody with bandoneon; the chilly fog lifts in the middle
7. 6:06 – accelerating vibes into highly quirky tune, upbeat but hard to pin down
8. 7:25 – relaxed, bittersweet; piano & vibes breathe together, trombone yearns
9. 6:08 – strong trombone, striding rhythm; gossamer melody floats in the breaks
