David Liebman & Ellery Eskelin -tenor saxophones,Tony Marino -double bass and Jim Black -drums: Renewal on Hatology 654

Also available Hatology 615: Different But The Same

There is a common understanding that we all share of freedom and spontaneity framed within underlying structures accompanied by a loving nod to the jazz legacy. The compositions heard on this CD evidence a diversity of idioms and styles unified by a common aesthetical approach. This is a group where straight ahead and free jazz clearly intersect with a feeling of immediacy and urgency that is palpable. Enjoy the music. --David Liebman

We covered a lot of ground on Different But The Same (Hatology 615) but due to the fact that Tony and Jim are now contributing compositions I think Renewal has even more scope and is a more personal statement from the group. Tony's “Palpable Clock" is a ten bar blues and Jim's “Cha" is a melodic essay written in 7/4. Dave's Dimi and the Blue Men" reflects his recent trip to Mauritania while Renewal is one of his signature deep ballads. Of my own pieces, “The Decider" is a multi-sectioned composition while “Instant Counterpoint" begs the question of whether it is written or completely improvised. Even I don't know for sure. --Ellery Eskelin
