About the Album

Cosmologic was founded as a collective quartet in 1999, and still consists of the original four musicians. The group initially incorporated interpretations of music by Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy, John Coltrane and others into their performances, but quickly moved towards playing only original compositions. Central to the group's sound is a commitment to developing challenging and original compositions. With nearly a decade of experience together, Cosmologic continues to extend their repertoire of original music, in an ongoing search for new ideas. The result is a band that pushes the envelope while remaining accessible. This is the fourth album - but the first with wide distribution - by this amazingly assured and swinging free-bop quartet, who have been developing their unique take on modern jazz for a decade and will strongly appeal to fans of: Anthony Braxtons 70s/80s quartets, John Carter-Bobby Bradford, Ornette Coleman, Steve Lacy-Roswell Rudd Quartet, Vandermark 5. More than impressive Brian Morton, The Wire ...a gem of crisp ensemble-playing and finely calibrated improvisations... San Diego Union Tribune The most exhilarating band performance of the entire five days [of the Guelph Jazz Festival]... Musicworks "Cosmologic made an impact with their hard hitting attack.... Cadence Jason Robinson - tenor saxophone Michael Dessen - trombone Scott Walton - bass Nathan Hubbard - drums

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
