Fieldwork: Door (Pi Recordings)
Label: Pi Recordings    
Released in: USA    


"Praised by NPR's Fresh Air as "a jazz power trio for the new century," Fieldwork makes its most powerful and fiercely imagined statement to date with Door, their third album for Pi Recordings. An important marker in this New York collective's ongoing evolution, Door documents three years of intense collaboration since Simulated Progress, and is the first Fieldwork recording to feature the jaw-dropping contributions of Tyshawn Sorey, drummer/composer/co-leader of Fieldwork since 2005. Rounded out by saxophonist/composer Steve Lehman and pianist/composer Vijay Iyer, Fieldwork reflects and refracts the American jazz tradition, modern composition, African and South Asian musics, underground hip-hop and electronica, and the influential music of Chicago's AACM.

All three members have growing reputations as important young bandleaders, composers, and players. Tyshawn Sorey is a new star on the New York creative music scene who has received critical acclaim for his work with Steve Coleman, Dave Douglas, and Muhal Richard Abrams, and for his expansive debut recording That/Not. Steve Lehman is an emerging heavyweight leader whose output resides on the frontiers of contemporary music, including extensive work with Anthony Braxton and Meshell Ndegeocello. Vijay Iyer is an award-winning pianist, composer, and electronic musician known for his widely respected solo projects, his ongoing collaborations with indie hip-hop poet Mike Ladd and with saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa, and his sideman work with Steve Coleman, Roscoe Mitchell, and Wadada Leo Smith.

The music on Door is born of Fieldwork's signature rehearsal process, which perhaps most resembles that of a rock band, and which they have rigorously maintained for their entire seven-year existence. They use extensive, non-soloistic group improvisation to expand each intricate composition into something far beyond the sum of its parts: tightly unified ensemble playing, extroverted and high-impact, but with a mysterious inner logic - a dense, visceral, and richly layered musical world."-Pi Recordings
