Morris, Joe Bass Quartet
High Definition

Morris, Joe Bass Quartet: High Definition (Hatology)
Label: Hatology    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Listen to the music of Joe Morris and one is immediately struck by a few things. First, there is his sense of rhythmic and melodic articulation; a sense of phrasing brimming with potent energy and focused resolve. Then there is an uncanny ability to balance freedom and groove. Finally, there is his ability to pull it all together in structures that bring out particularly inspired playing by his collaborators... With this release, Morris and crew cement their status as musicians from a generation  who have fully absorbed a polyglot view of the jazz tradition. They have the  commitment, experience, and the innate understanding to seamlessly pull from  both inside and outside, from swing to freedom. But they also have the dedication  and creativity to make it their own. It is how they pull together all these disparate  threads into a unified vocabulary indelibly stamped with their own sensibilities and  personalities that makes this such a riveting statement."-Michael Rosenstein, from the back cover
