Some Trees

Levin, Daniel Quartet: Some Trees (Hatology)
Label: Hatology    
Released in: Switzerland    

A set of original pieces from cellist Levin, along with Steve Lacy's Wickets, Ornette Coleman's Morning Song, and Eric Dolphy's Out to Lunch (between Otomo's album of the same name and this release it's been a good year for Dolph!) in a NY quartet, performed at NYC's Roulette i 2005. Extraordinary jazz from an extraordinary quartet. "The traditional jazz ensemble is a functional balance of soloists and rhythm section. But if the instruments that establish the rhythmic foundation - especially the drums - are removed, then each remaining instrument is free to vary the timing, spacing, and emphasis within its own phrasing.... Altering the relationship between instruments forces closer attention to be paid to dynamics, pacing, sound placement, and group interaction. The almost telepathic level of empathy between the quartet members ("each joining a neighbor") sustains the music's creative tension, and defines its singular identity. - Art Lange
