Peter Epstein / Brad Shepik / Matt Kilmer - Lingua Franca (CD)

$ 11.99


Release Date: 06/01/15

Both Shepik and Epstein became well established on the NY scene in the 1990s â€' Brad as one of the most intense and committed guitarists, at home playing in, out and on the edge, a lynchpin in several world music influenced jazz ensembles (Dave Douglas’s Tiny Bell Trio, Matt Darriau’s Paradox Trio, Pachora) as well as his own bands; Peter as an equally versatile alto and soprano saxman, a superb composer-performer with interests ranging from improv to Bach to Balkan, Indian and west African music. The music here is even more diverse than their previous work together, alternating between different grooves and a more meditative, timeless, often folky feel. The individual elements that make up the songs are sometimes clear (e.g. the reggae tune “Sunrise,” the bluesy “Miro,” the Celtic “Emerald”), but more often they are effortlessly and elegantly combined (e.g. “Monsaraz' with its eastern modality plus its 12-bar blues-influenced form and chord progression).<br><br>TRACK LISTING: <br><br>1.
