Jackson, Keefe Quartet: Seeing You See (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"Chicago continues to be a fundamental creative center of the most interesting jazz played nowadays, and the musicians forming the quartet led by Keefe Jackson in "Seeing You See" are some of the most active musicians in the Wind City. Each one of them is involved in a great variety of bands and records.Jackson's other musical investments are the groups Project Project and Fast Citizens, and with both this saxophonist and clarinetist is developing his own innovative approach of the eternal equation between written composition and improvisation.

Trombonist Jeb Bishop was a partner in several Ken Vandermark's ensembles, namely Vandermark 5 and Territory Band. Also a philosopher, he is surprisingly a very physical performer, as we could testify with his contributions to the Peter Brotzmann Chicago Tentet and with the Globe Unity Orchestra. He leads his own trio, was the co-founder of Lucky 7s and is a member of The Engines, adding on the side some colaborations with unclassifiable figures like Kevin Drumm and Jim O'Rourke.

An ex-student of Roscoe Mitchell, Jason Roebke is one of the most in demand bassists around, present in Fred Lonberg-Holm's Valentine Trio, Mike Reed's People, Jorrit Dijkstra's Flatlands Collective, Jason Stein's Locksmith Isidore or Jason Adasiewicz's Rolldown. Even if he's back to Japan now, drummer Nori Tanaka is another habitué of the Chicago scene. His associations with Jason Ajemian began numerous others, among them the intermedia trio with Jeff Parker and video-artist Selina Trepp. With musicians like these, only incredible music could result, and that is for sure the present case."-Clean Feed
