descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Here is one more fundamental opus of the present day jazz creativity recorded in Portugal, the little, sunny country serving as the door to enter Europe and to get out in the direction of the New World. The second album of the trio founded by drummer and composer Harris Eisenstadt with Ellery Eskelin (tenor saxophone) and Angelica Sanchez (piano) is a climb of several steps towards brilliancy. And part of the reason resides in the fact that Eisenstadt enables his phantoms (his personal references) to float, like writer Joseph Conrad in the title-track, "The Destructive Element", composer Arnold Schoenberg in the two parts of "From Schoenberg", and film director Akira Kurosawa in "Here Are the Samurai". If the debut CD of the September Trio was about ballads, this one has as main theme the simple / complex paradox. This having nothing to do with the stereotyped oppositions between composition and improvisation, or between massive intensity and small group dynamics: simplicity and complexity are where you less expect it, and sometimes you take one for another. Fabulous, in one word."-Clean Feed Records


Artist Biographies:

"One of only a handful of drummers equally well known for his work as a composer, Brooklyn-based Harris Eisenstadt (b. Toronto, 1975) is among the most individual and prolific musicians of his generation. His resume includes studies with some of the most respected names in jazz and improvised music, West African and Afro-Cuban drumming, and performance credits in jazz, film, theater, poetry, dance, contemporary concert music and opera.

Eisenstadt has performed all over the globe, received grants from organizations such as Meet The Composer, American Composers Forum, Canada Council for the Arts, and appeared on more than 60 recordings since 2000, including twenty as a leader. Recordings of his compositions often appear on the Songlines, Clean Feed, No Business, and 482 Music labels, and are consistently included on critics' best-of lists. Recent honors: Rising Star Percussion Percussion, Arranger, and Composer categories of the Downbeat international critics poll; Best Album, Drummer, Composer categories of the El Intruso international critics poll.

His first work for orchestra, Palimpsest, was premiered by the American Composers Orchestra, as part of the Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute at Miller Theater, Columbia University (2011). Eisenstadt's second orchestral work, Four Songs, commissioned by the Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra, was premiered at the Brooklyn Museum (2013). His first string quartet, Whatever Will Happen, That Will Also Be, was premiered as part of Eisenstadt's twelve-set residency at The Stone in NYC (2015). As a writer and radio producer, he has contributed to National Public Radio and AfroPop Worldwide. Eisenstadt is also an active AfroCuban batá drummer in New York and a longtime researcher in African and diaspora vernacular traditions. He has travelled to West Africa twice (Gambia, Senegal) to research Mandinka and Wolof music, and to Cuba twice (Matanzas, Havana) to research Afro-Cuban music."
