Fiona's Comments

A zen detox of epic-enter proportions, needed.

About the Album

"Epicenter," is the title track on composer and bassist Chris Lightcap and Bigmouth's newest CD, which features Lightcap as well as two profoundly original tenor saxophonists, Tony Malaby and Chris Cheek, the multifaceted genius of keyboardist Craig Taborn, and the creative powerhouse drumming of Gerald Cleaver. From the hard-swinging freedom of the title track to the ambient interwoven layers of “White Horse” to the off-kilter groove and slow build of “Stillwell,” Lightcap’s music displays the breadth of his unique compositional vision.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
