descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The trio of Jackson/Baker/Kirshner also hails from the city of Chicago and played one of our personal favorite sets at "Astral Spirits in Chicago" in July! These three amazing individuals have all made their marks on the city's improv scene, being regulars at Elastic, Constellation, The Hungry Brain and more (and don't forget Jim Baker's regular Monday evening shows at the Beat Kitchen if you ever find yourself in Chicago). Keefe Jackson, Jim Baker & Julian Kirshner have been playing as a trio now for a few years and "The Noisey Miner" is their proper & mesmerizing debut release. Recorded just under a year ago at Constellation.

Side A hits straight out of the gate, Keefe Jackson's guttural tenor against Julian Kirshner's skittering drums while Jim Baker fills in the gaps with his intensely beautiful piano. There is a natural ebb and flow in the trio from ecstatic Coltrane/Tyner/Jones moments to more spacious and open sounds. Side B switches gears with Jim Baker moving over to the ARP synthesizer creating a web of other-worldly sounds that are met head on by Jackson's incredible sopranino sax and Kirshner's use of the drumkit as pure sound - at times reminding us of some of the more "out" Sun Ra LP's. "The Noisey Miner" doesn't necessarily come across as a jazz album in the classical sense yet there is an undeniable pulse and forward momentum in the group's improv. Let's hope to hear much more from Jackson/Baker/Kirshner in the near future, but for now we can take comfort in knowing that "The Noisey Miner" demonstrates that they are not going to run out of fresh ideas anytime soon."-Astral Spirits


Artist Biographies:

"Keefe Jackson, saxophonist/clarinetist/improvisor/composer, arrived in Chicago in 2001 from his native Fayettevile, Arkansas. He performs regularly in the U.S. and in Europe with many musicians including Pandelis Karayorgis, Tomeka Reid, Tim Daisy, Dave Rempis, Jeb Bishop, Jason Roebke, Jason Adasiewicz, Mike Reed, Jason Stein, Josh Berman, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Frank Rosaly, Oscar Jan Hoogland and Marc Unternaehrer. He has also appeared with Michael Moore, Ab Baars, Michiel Braam, Satoko Fujii, and Anthony Coleman. Bill Meyer (Chicago Reader): "...the impeccable logic of his lines and the richness of his tone leave you wanting more... Jackson's high-register squiggles and coarsely voiced, rippling runs push the limits of the tenor's tonal envelope." Frank van Herk, de Volkskrant (Amsterdam): "[Jackson] has an old-fashioned, warm-woolly sound, and a feeling for melodic lines that take their time in unfolding." He has been mentioned in the DownBeat Critics Poll in the Rising Star Tenor Saxophone category. Recordings are available on Delmark and Clean Feed Records."

"Jim Baker was born in Chicago a number of years ago and has been playing in and around Chicago and elsewhere in the world for a few decades, mostly on piano and analog synthesizer; mostly in improvisational contexts; in situations involving, amongst others, Fred Anderson, Ken Vandermark, Michael Zerang, Mars Williams, Brian Sandstrom, Steve Hunt, Edward WIlkerson Jr, David Boykin, Rob Mazurek, Guillermo Gregorio, Nicole Mitchell, Vincent Davis, the Thing XXL, Tortoise, Dave Rempis, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Paul Hartsaw, Janet Bean, Damon Short, and numerous others.

For a number of years, Mr Baker was the house pianist at the weekly jam sessions at Fred Anderson's Velvet Lounge; and for most of the past decade, has played weekly with the improvising quartet Extraordinary Popular Delusions (the other three Delusions: Messrs. Williams, Sandstrom, & Hunt) , who currently play nearly every monday night at Beat Kitchen in Chicago."
