Conference Call
Conference Call can be as balanced and beautiful as an intricate organism, but just as soon rage with holy fire. The quartet—consisting of saxophonist Gebhard Ullmann, bassist Joe Fonda, drummer George Schuller and pianist Michael Jefry Stevens—perpetually weaves in all three dimensions, as well as in time—its own, and music history's.

Together since the late '90s, the group is going strong, burning away but losing no energy, relating jazz past and political past to hard and fast present moments—and spiriting these, in turn, into a future history—forging sound new documents bound to have permanent place in the history of music. Whether that sound is a cry from the streets, a cry of a people, or the cry of a sole saxophone, Conference Call captures it, reporting straight from the scene of stage or studio.

All About Jazz's Gordon Marshall spoke with three members of Conference Call—Stevens, Fonda and Schuller—in a conference call, about the germination of the group, how it has evolved over the years, and its latest release, What about the ...? (NotTwo, 2010).
