Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"For any emerging artist seeking to establish a foothold in a crowded field, it's imperative to make a strong first impression. That's a tenet Miha Gantar clearly has taken to heart. Gantar, a 26-year-old improvising pianist and composer born in Slovenia and now based in Amsterdam, made a strong first splash in 2022 with Introducing, a 5-CD debut release on the esteemed Clean Feed label.

Another 5-CD set, Amsterdam, followed on the same label in October 2023. Now, Gantar completes a hat trick with New York City, a third 5-CD set. This set illuminates the young pianist's prodigious creativity and versatility across five distinct settings.

Reinforcing their individuality, each album in the set has its own title. The first, Ultima, unites the pianist with bassist John Hebert and drummer Eric McPherson, an elite rhythm section previously employed by Andrew Hill and Fred Hersch. The second, Transitions, underscores Gantar's background in classical music, complementing his piano with the quartet of violinists Doori Na and Sarah Thomas, violist Amy Huimei Tan, and cellist Irene Han-the latter three members of the Bergamot Quartet. Sanctuary, third in the set, captures a first meeting between Gantar and saxophonist Zoh Amba, a Tennessee transplant cutting an increasingly high profile in New York with her soulful approach to ecstatic jazz. Disc four, Angels is another trio-but here, instead of the classic bass and drums format, Gantar spars with two percussionists, Kweku Sumbry and Jeremy Dutton.

The last disc, Towards Purity, finds Gantar alone, deploying his powers of invention in an extended nocturne that's ceaselessly lyrical despite its lack of tonal mooring. It's an ideal coda and benediction after the busy meetings and collaborations found on the four previous albums comprising New York City-and, in its own way, one more unique artistic statement Gantar could only have created here, and now."-Clean Feed

"Moving in a matrices of sound, Houston born drummer Jeremy Dutton weaves a netting of intention, comprising explicit and implied articulations, steady and emergent pulses. (Bluenote Records) A resident of New York for the past 9 years, Dutton is the rhythmic force behind some of the most critically acclaimed jazz records including "Kingmaker" (Joel Ross Bluenote), "Who Are You?" (Joel Ross Bluenote), "Flight" (James Francies Bluenote), "Purest Form" (James Francies Bluenote), and "Magdalena" (Maria Grand Biophilia). In every setting Dutton proves himself to be both a vital collaborator and creator. Aiming always for what is true and organic in every situation.

He has performed in venues all over the world including Ronnie Scotts(London), Elbphilharmonie Hamburg (Germany), The Montreal Jazz Festival (Canada), Pori Jazz Festival (Finland), The Jazzlab (Australia), Bluenote Tokyo (Japan), and The Village Vanguard (NYC). Despite his rhythmic mastery, vulnerability is the currency that Dutton trades in as he chooses more angular and subtle paths to communicate with his fellow musicians.

This commitment to detail and subtlety is no surprise when viewed next to Dutton's cache of teachers that includes Billy Hart, Kendrick Scott, Tyshawn Sorey, and Victor Lewis. It's no wonder that Dutton was asked at 21 years old to serve as drum chair in the illustrious Vijay Iyer Sextet and has also performed with Ambrose Akinmusire, Camila Meza, Gerald Clayton, Linda Oh, Keyon Harrold, Logan Richardson, Brandee Younger, Charles Altura, Melissa Aldana, Mike Moreno, Maria Grand, Philip Dizack, Sasha Berliner, Stefon Harris, Tigran Hamasayan, Melanie Charles, Taylor Eigsti, Bobby Watson, Matt Stevens, Harish Raghavan, Jacky Terrasson, Ben Wendel, Immanuel Wilkins, and Marquis Hill.

On his first album as a leader, "Anyone is Better than Here", Dutton tells a coming of age story about self acceptance and looks to establish himself as a worthwhile composer. Produced by Kendrick Scott and Dutton, the album's memorable melodies and strong improvisational performances give life to a bright and beautiful album that's not without grit."
