Myra Melford’s The Whole Tree Gone Out Today On Firehouse 12 Records

From Improvised Communications:

Today is the official street date for The Whole Tree Gone, pianist/composer Myra Melford’s Firehouse 12 Records debut.

Her first recording as a bandleader since 2006, and second with her longstanding ensemble, Be Bread, The Whole Tree Gone documents the latest evolution of eight original compositions she has been performing with this and other groups for the past five years.

“Melford’s compositions for an obviously inspired sextet comprising trumpet (Cuong Vu), clarinet (Ben Goldberg), guitar (Brandon Ross), acoustic bass guitar (Stomu Takeishi) and drums (Matt Wilson) are works of fine art,” writes saxophonist and jazz critic, Chris Kelsey, “and her piano playing gains more depth with every passing year. Wonderful music.”

? FORWARD FLIGHT (Friday and Saturday) Subtitled “A Gathering of Brass in Contemporary Music,” this four-day affair is a subseries of the Festival of New Trumpet Music.

Ingrid Laubrock – Saxophone Is Her Only Constant

From NYTimes.com:

For the last several years Ms. Laubrock has been visiting the United States now and then to study and perform, and on Wednesday night at the Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village she led a New York-based quartet — Mary Halvorson on guitar, John Hébert on bass, Tom Rainey on drums — with Kris Davis on piano occasionally as a fifth member. It was her own composed music, but sometimes as free as it could get within parameters.

Henry Grimes, Paul Dunmall & Andrew Cyrille: The Profound Sound Trio at the Vortex, London

A review from All About Jazz:

A buzz of anticipation gripped a full house at the Vortex for the London debut of the Profound Sound Trio—a collective of British reedman Paul Dunmall and a heavyweight rhythm section of Andrew Cyrille on drums and Henry Grimes on bass. Their genesis as a trio came in 2006 when Grimes traveled to England and linked up with Dunmall on the recommendation of sometime AAJ writer, Marc Medwin. Upon recognising kindred spirits, they extended their collaboration, adding Cyrille for an appearance at New York City’s prestigious Vision Festival in 2008. Such was the success of that occasion that it spawned the release of the concert recording as Opus de Life (Porter Records, 2008) and a subsequent appearance later that year at the Cheltenham Festival. In recognition that further exploration of the fertile possibilities inherent in the collective was merited, Birmingham Jazz organized a UK tour of which this was the third night of seven.
