Fine Objects

Cancura / Morris / Nazary: Fine Objects (Not Two Records)
Label: Not Two Records    
Released in: Poland    

"Playing bass has given me a new opportunity to play music with so many great musicians. Some are known and some are not. I have always tried to do new things with new people, but now as a bassist I have more of those chances than ever before. So here is another recording with new players that deserve to be heard.

We chose material that we felt changed our interaction but that kept the playing simple enough so that we could carry on loosely and playfully like an old blowin' session from the 50's, but with a new kind of direction. Some tracks are originals. A couple of them are pieces that I recorded on guitar, two are by Petr and a few are interpretations of compositions by great masters. The tune "My Reerie" is an old and under-utilized standard. Sonny Rollins played it on Tenor Madness. We have a different take on it here. Another, "Voice Poetry", was recorded by Ornette Coleman's electric group "Prime Time". The pieces inform our soloing and allow us to mark time with our own collective spirit but also with variety. There are no strict arrangements. This is open and spontaneously improvised trio music, with thematic structures that give us a platform to create some fine objects for listening."-Joe Morris

"Great unpretentious sax trio, playing improvised music around thematic structures, with three excellent musicians, freely, but sounding like a very traditional bop sax trio. A pleasure to hear, "fine objects for listening", as Joe Morris aptly puts it in the liner notes. Morris plays bass, Petr Cancura tenor and soprano, and Jason Nazary drums. The playlist consists of two "older" Morris compositions, one by Dolphy, one by Ornette Coleman, and a few group compositions/improvisations. The sound quality is good, the technical skills are excellent, the improvisations deeply felt, the accessibility is high. No boundaries are broken, no exceptional things are tried out, but just listening to the absolute basic notion of what a sax trio should sound like, is a true joy. Petr Cancura is surely a guy to watch. He already released PeopleMusic earlier this year, and is planning for another trio release with Morris and Luther Gray later this year on AUM Fidelity."-FreeJazz-Stef
