Released: Sep 2010
Vibraphonist and bandleader Jason Adasiewicz's leadership is on display within seconds here: He and bassist Nate McBride begin a gymnastic tumble while drummer Mike Reed offers a solid, unforgiving groove. The rules here are casual; solos rise and fade on a whim, with McBride and Adasiewicz clearly listening to each other as they play. For a quick sample, try "Overtones of China," "Rose Garden" and "Off My Back Jack." It's exciting stuff, offering a glimpse of the vibraphone's potential in the post-everything era.
