Momentus (OA2 Records) by Michael Webster
Fascinating little album, presents waves of textures that sound inter-related, but differentiated to give it a sense of the expansive. The kind of album that likely reveals more of itself over time as the number of listens increases.
New York-based saxophonist and composer Michael Webster presents a collection of nine original compositions featuring trumpeter Ingrid Jensen and vibraphonist Chris Dingman, along with some of the leading NYC jazz musicians of his generation. Working with all the textural and orchestration options his sextet allows, Webster stretches the possibilities of form while never losing his focus on the strength and clarity of the melodies.comments powered by Disqus
