Andrew Cyrille Profiled

Andrew Cyrille

Source: The New York Times.

Andrew Cyrille opens one of his two new albums, “The Declaration of Musical Independence,” with a syncopated figure on a snare drum, as taut and riveting as a military cadence. Then he adds cymbals and kick drum, giving the phrase a sinuous curve just as the rest of the band enters. What they’re playing is “Coltrane Time,” an obscure piece by John Coltrane, and Mr. Cyrille shows the way forward with a regal, flowing self-possession.

He has been working this way more or less since the 1960s, reshaping jazz’s rhythmic syntax while engaging with its lineage. A tireless workhorse in the avant-garde, Mr. Cyrille, 76, deserves substantial credit for helping to unlock a freer pulse and purpose in the music, slipping away from a metronomic framework while preserving a rigorous attention to form.

Upcoming Bridge Shows in Chicago

English: *description: Jeb Bishop photographer...

Like all the assemblies of musicians put forward by the transatlantic network The Bridge, this formation is a story of mergings and involvements, a story born of desire and a few initial encounters. Thus, Frédéric BBriet and Guillaume Orti have spent much time together at the time of the Hask collective in the 90s. With his polyvalent ensemble Nimbus, the double bass player has made sure to invite the saxophonist, as well as flute player Magic Malik (who has also collaborated with Orti, most notably for the ensemble Octurn). Briet, during a trip to the U.S. in 2012, met Tyshawn Sorey in New York and Jeb Bishop in Chicago, with whom he later collaborated in the ensemble Bonadventure Pencroff. Sorey, who knew Malik due to their both gravitating in the stevecolemanian solar system, share with Bishop and Khari B. a common denominator: George Lewis, the trombonist, improviser, composer, musical software programmer, and Columbia University musicologist, with whom all three have performed or studied. And Khari B., son of the saxophone and clarinet player Mwata Bowden, was the previous chairman of the AACM, on which Lewis wrote a book.
