Maroney Quartet, Denman

Maroney Quartet, Denman : Gaga (Nuscope)
Label: Nuscope    
Released in: USA    

"[...] The theme of Denman MaroneyŐs music is complexity; not a single, stand-alone complexity, but a convergence of complexities: the mathematics of pitch and rhythm expressed through partials and ratios; the historical intersections between the experimental music tradition of Cowell, Cage et al and jazz; and a period in jazz history when the impasse between its more mulish doctrines and what are arguably jazz-in-name-only hybrids threatens jazzŐs relevance to the currently emerging generation that will largely set the terms for artistry and innovation in music for the 21st Century...Maroney does not reduce complexity into pat-your-foot jazz on Gaga; rather, he makes it audible and comprehensible, no small feat."-Bill Shoemaker, from the liner notes
