Lightcap, Chris' Big Mouth: Deluxe (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    


"Featuring the formidable line-up of Tony Malaby and Chris Cheek on tenor saxophones, Andrew D'Angelo on alto saxophone, Craig Taborn on keyboards and Gerald Cleaver on drums, Deluxe is bassist Chris Lightcap's highly anticipated follow up to his critically acclaimed quartet albums.

After establishing his career as a bassist with a wide range of improvisers like Joe Morris, Regina Carter, Mark Turner, Rob Brown, and Matt Wilson, Lightcap began developing music for his own groups in the late 90s. Lay-Up (2000) and Bigmouth (2003) were on many top 10 jazz radio lists and received critical praise in the New York Times, Jazztimes and Allaboutjazz. In 2005 he named the band Bigmouth and added Taborn to the group. After playing a series of jaw-dropping sold out shows in New York City over the next few years, the group went into Brooklyn Recording to record Deluxe, featuring eight of Lightcap's originals.

The group has born out of many years of collaboration in each other's bands and as cosidemen. Malaby and Cleaver have worked with Lightcap since his earliest bandleader performances and Lightcap and Cleaver also played on Taborn's stunning 2001 release, Light Made Lighter. Malaby and Cheek have worked together for years in the Bands of Paul Motian and Charlie Haden.

Lightcap's original compositions run the gamut from sonic experimentation to old-school rock and pop influences. These tunes are brought to life with incomparable beauty and passion by the group's improvisational prowess."-Clean Feed



"Craig Marvin Taborn (/ˈteɪˌbɔːrn/; born February 20, 1970) is an American pianist, organist, keyboardist and composer. He works solo and in bands, mostly playing various forms of jazz. He started playing piano and Moog synthesizer as an adolescent and was influenced at an early stage by a wide range of music, including by the freedom expressed in recordings of free jazz and contemporary classical music.

While at university, Taborn toured and recorded with jazz saxophonist James Carter. Taborn went on to play with numerous other musicians in electronic and acoustic settings, while also building a reputation as a solo pianist. He has a range of styles, and often adapts his playing to the nature of the instrument and the sounds that he can make it produce. His improvising, particularly for solo piano, often adopts a modular approach, in which he begins with small units of melody and rhythm and then develops them into larger forms and structures.

In 2011, Down Beat magazine chose Taborn as winner of the electric keyboard category, as well as rising star in both the piano and organ categories. By May 2016, Taborn had released six albums under his own name and appeared on more than eighty as a sideman."
