The OtherTet brings four NY players with long-running musical relationships together in a quartet that cuts across genres and styles to create a unique and thoughtful group sound.

OtherTet, The
(Lowe / Ho Bynum / Morris / Obeng)

OtherTet, The: (Lowe / Ho Bynum / Morris / Obeng) (Engine)
Label: Engine    
Released in: USA    

"The OtherTet recording is a product of long running musical relationships between unique musical personalities. Joe Morris is a prolific presence on the avant jazz scene, and here he is paired with Kwaku Kwakye Obeng, a Ghanaian master drummer at age seventeen. Obeng's 'virtuosity in playing is marked by lightning speed and effortless power' and his solo at the ends of 'Dreamsketch' (Track 3) and 'Look Below' (Track 5) showcase this power as well as the completely original jazz/african drumming style. Obeng has been playing with Bill Lowe, the senior member of the OtherTet since the 1980's. Lowe contributes tunes and playing that move across jazz genres, from the swinging, Dixie-ish 'Naptown/Trenton' to the more open 'Cold Day Clip'. Taylor Ho Bynum, the fourth member of the OtherTet, has worked with Bill Lowe for over twenty years, and his mischievous playing accents and deepens Bill Lowe's trombone/tuba work. A stew of generational and cultural influences make the OtherTet a rhythmic freight train that cuts across styles to give listeners a strong and thoughtful set of jazz."-Engine Studios
