The music of bassist Jason Roebke and his trio of guitarist Matthew Schneider and drummer Marcus Evan is rooted in the leader's solid bass work and the tasteful and informed lyrical freedom of his sidemen, as heard in this live performace Chicago's Hungry Brain.

Roebke, Jason: Every Sunday (Clean Feed)

Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"The bass is an intermediary. At once rhythmic, textural, melodic and harmonic. It can keep the band together or signal a dissipation. Let's face it: nothing makes more sense than to have the double bassist as bandleader. What about being the bassist also the composer of the band? Well, that's another story. The music of Jason Roebke is raw and grounded. The journey is, in itself, the destination. A kind of musique vérité, particular to the ethos of his native Chicago, embracing crackly amplifiers and slamming doors at the legendary Chicago "Hungry Brain" club.

It's with no surprise that the bass playing in Every Sunday is put to the service of this trio with Matthew Schneider and Marcus Evans, instead of being the main voice. Recalling the work of is composition teacher, and the jazz luminary for whom he worked as a music copyist, Roscoe Mitchell, the trio waits for just the right moment to tumble, pause or glide, like a jazz melted into the cracks of free improvisation. Roebke weaves his bass in and out of the spotlight, always at the service of the music.

In that particular, there's no great difference between the Roebke leader and the Roebke sideman in groups like Jeb Bishop Trio, Jason Adasiewicz Rolldown, Jason Stein's Locksmith Isidore or Mike Reed's People, Places and Things. Guitarist Matthew Schneider deconstructs beautiful melodies with his guitar until they get totally abstract and the drummer, Marcus Evans, moves from the "miss-one-beat" swing of the post-bop era to rather puzzling textures."-Clean Feed
