Lundbom, Jon & Big Five Chord: Big Five Chord (Hot Cup Records)
Label: Hot Cup Records    
Released in: USA    

"The first recording by Jon Lunbom's Big V Chord dates to the summer of 2003 and the first recorded collaboration between bassist Moppa Elliott and alto saxophonist Jon Irabagon. Lundbom's compositions and arrangements are complex, thoughtful and engaging clearly showcasing the immense talent in this young band.

Jon Lundbom & Big Five Chord (Jon Lundbom, Jon Irabagon, Bryan Murray, Moppa Elliot, Danny Fischer) Guitarist and composer Jon Lundbom currently resides in New York City. He leads his band, Jon Lundbom & Big Five Chord; he also co-leads The Jon Lundbom/Bryan Murray Quartet with tenor saxophonist Bryan Murray. As a sideman, Jon performs regularly with Jason Liebman & the Uprising, Wolfe & the Wayside, and Aaron Irwin's Viscous World Project, as well as with Stuart d'Arrietta's 'Belly of a Drunken Piano - The Music of Tom Waits.' He has also collaborated extensively with performance artist Julia May Jonas (Nellie Tinder)."-Hot Cup

"Chicago-reared and now an active participant in New York City's improvising scene, guitarist Jon Lundbom fuses avant-garde, jazz-rock scenarios with odd-metered rhythms and more. The quintet is augmented by the twin sax attack of Bryan Murray and Jon Irabagon, whereas Lundbom occasionally puts the pedal to the metal. But there's quite a bit of improvisational forays based upon the soloists' interweaving lines and soaring momentum along with a cavalcade of variables. At times, the band tosses in notions of angst and shock-therapy to coincide with its semi-loud modus operandi. Fans of New York City's wily downtown scene should welcome this outing with open arms!"-Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz
