New Ivo Perelman Box Reviewed

Source: burning ambulance

Tenor saxophonist Ivo Perelman (listen to his episode of the BA podcast via Osiris, Apple or Spotify) rarely releases a single album’s worth of music at a time. (Polarity, a duo with trumpeter Nate Wooley out now on Burning Ambulance Music, is a recent exception.) He always seems to have a multi-disc box in him, and his latest set is one of his largest. Brass and Ivory Tales offers nine CDs’ worth of duos with pianists, recorded between 2014 and 2021. His creative partners on this epic journey are Dave Burrell, Marilyn Crispell, Sylvie Courvoisier, Agustí Fernández, Vijay Iyer, Aruán Ortiz, Aaron Parks, Angelica Sanchez, and Craig Taborn.
