Drew Gress, The Irrational Numbers

With The Irrational Numbers, composer/bassist Drew Gress adds another stellar album to his already impressive discography of smart and uncompromising modern jazz. Utilizing the same core group of players who appeared on Gress' previous Premonition album, 7 Black Butterflies-- Tim Berne, Craig Taborn, Tom Rainey and Ralph Alessi -- Gress succeeds in developing the language of jazz by adapting his group's unlimited improvisational range to his lyrical and vibrant compositional structuralism.

2. Greenleaf Music Announces Forthcoming Dave Douglas & Keystone Recording, Moonshine

Dave Douglas' Keystone band emerges again with their follow-up to 2005's Grammy-nominated Keystone album. Moonshine is hybrid recording combining the raw blowing, eye-popping, ear-bending live experience that this band is known for, and neo-psychedelic post-production. The end result is a masterwork of improvised electro-jazz and features 9 new Douglas compositions.

Keystone is comprised of Dave Douglas on trumpet, Marcus Strickland on saxes, Adam Benjamin of Kneebody on Rhodes, Brad Jones on the Ampeg Baby Bass, Gene Lake on drums, and DJ Olive on turntables.

Preorder begins on November 6th.

“Keystone is a riveting modernist requiem: growling electric piano, whirlpool-funk drums and the twin-snake dance of sax and Douglas' punchy pleading horn, set in the echo-chamber chapel of Miles Davis' In a Silent Way." -Rolling Stone

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
