On Meaning by Steve Lehman
Released: Nov 2007
Label: Pi Recordings
On Meanings features a front line of Lehman's alto sax plus trumpet and vibraphone; his compositions here have an urgent sense of forward momentum, driven by bassist Drew Gress and the phenomenal drummer Tyshawn Sorey. Sorey's impeccably precise breakbeats reflect a submersion in contemporary electronic beat music whose digital essence is richly rendered organic by this all-acoustic group. The tight song structures and melodies are opened up for short and rewarding solos, and the vibraphone adds buoyancy to the heady mixture. Repeat listens reward.
