Law Quartet, John
Abacus

Law Quartet, John: Abacus (Hatology)
Label: Hatology    
Released in: Switzerland    


"The word (Abacus) has two meanings, according to the Concise Oxford, it's a frame used for counting or calculation, and -in architectural circles- it's that flat bit at the top of a column. ...Abacus, subtitled 'Partita for piano, saxophone, bass, drums', is a jazz composition modeled on a baroque suite. Even in an age of global fusions and cultural collisions, this seems a little out of the ordinary. Not so to Law, who insists it's no big deal and says the idea came about quite naturally. "Baroque music is very close to me, I've been playing Bach all my life."-Graham Lock



"Gerry Hemingway has led a number of quartet and quintets since the mid 1980's. In addition he has been a member of a wide array of long standing collaborative groups including Brew with Reggie Workman and Miya Masaoka, the GRH trio with Georg Graewe and Ernst Reijseger, the WHO trio with Michel Wintsch and Bänz Oester, as well as numerous duo projects with Thomas Lehn, John Butcher, Ellery Eskelin, Marilyn Crispell, and others. Mr. Hemingway is a Guggenheim fellow and has received numerous commissions for chamber and orchestral works as well as being noted for his innovative and multifaceted work as a solo performer which began in 1974. He was a member of the Anthony Braxton Quartet between 1983 and 1994 and is also well known for his collaborations with some of the world's most outstanding improvisers and composers including Evan Parker, Cecil Taylor, Mark Dresser, Anthony Davis, Derek Bailey, Leo Smith and many others. He currently lives in Switzerland having joined the faculty of the Hochschule Luzern in 2009."
