Roebke, Jason Octet: High - Red - Center (Delmark)

Label: Delmark    
Released in: USA    

"Composer and double bassist Jason Roebke is the backbone of many of Chicago's forward-looking jazz groups. Now he brings an octet of Chicago's finest improvisers on the new recording, Highed/Center. The program of eleven new compositions is deeply rooted in rich Ellingtonian harmony while re-imagining the approach with exciting individual interplay between the soloists and ensemble. The gorgeous ballads and fiery free jazz compliment each other and consistently surprise."-Delmark
