Robinson, Jason: Tiresian Symmetry (Cuneiform)
Label: Cuneiform    
Released in: USA    


"In saxophonist/composer Jason Robinson's polydirectional masterpiece Tiresian Symmetry, he's gathered an extraordinary cast of musicians to interpret his music. The music's richly suggestive harmonic and metrical relationships elicit a wide array of responses, but ultimately lisateners find their own sense of order and meaning amidst the sumptuous sounds. For Robinson, a capaciously inventive artist who has flourished in a boggling array of settings, from solo excursions with electronics and free jazz quartets to roots reggae ensembles and multimedia collectives, Tiresian Symmetry represents his most expansive project yet. Reflecting his interest in larger ensembles, the band is clearly inspired by Henry Threadgill's brawny Very Very Circus ensemble, which introduced the double tuba configuration. "That's been a touch point," Robinson says. "I'd been hearing Threadgill's stuff with the two tubas and combining that with some of the natural trajectories of (my) ensemble." "-Cuneiform
