Descriptions, Reviews, &c.
"Jack Walrath's music demands a lot from whoever plays it. Generally, the trumpeter's compositions reflect both an encyclopedic knowledge of the tradition and a Mingus-informed but ultimately original approach to convey protean emotional intelligence, which produce themes that can move back and forth between light and shadow, sometimes at a saunter, sometimes at a sprint. Then, there are the occasions when Walrath simply throws it down: Here's a concept full of taxing formal elements; there's an additional layer of quotations and allusions requiring real jazz literacy; and there's multiple complex emotions that must be precisely projected, which can be spliced together at a jolting pace. Deal with it. There is a lot to deal with on this encounter between Walrath and three exceptional Iberian musicians, both of whom are Spanish, and the Portuguese bassist Ze Eduardo. The surfacing of one of jazz's more woefully undervalued artists; the coming of age, jazzwise, of Iberian musicians; the reassertion of universal truths: that's a lot for a single CD. Deal with it."-Clean Feed
