Somewhere Meeting Nobody
Released in: Germany
Somewhere Meeting Nobody is a CD with nine original compositions, one jazz standard, and one pop piece. This is a CD with a unique sound - four remarkable individuals from the current New York scene come together to create a thrilling, vital group voice. Besides Rueckert, the musicians are tenor saxophonist Mark Turner, the grand master of powerful multiform tones, guitarist Brad Shepik, the specialist of the elastic and warm sound, and bassist Matt Penman, an incredibly flexible player.
From the first measure on, a current of powerful, sensitively interacting colors holds the listener hostage. This is music from a band with a low-keyed leader a drummer who has everything firmly in hand, without appearing too dominant - someone who has a good ear for his fellow musicians. The pieces contain a dose of laconic humor. They carry such neat titles as "Dan Smith Will Teach You Guitar," and "Delete For Ever."
Music of shimmering beauty and tongue-in-cheek intelligence sticks in your head - and right in the middle of it is "To Have and to Hold," a pop song from the 1980's transformed into a powerful jazz hymn. This is thrilling new jazz for the listener who loves expressive music that is both powerful and sublte."-Pirouet
