John Abercrombie unveils a band comprised of old friends, and increases the improvisational quotient in his new music on "Cat 'n' Mouse", which extends the experimental spirit of the "Open Land" session. This time, the emphasis is placed on string sounds, and the interaction of Abercrombie's guitar, Mark Feldman's violin, and Marc Johnson's double-bass. Drummer Joey Baron adds drive and an edgy intensity to the music.

Gateway (John Abercrombie, D.Holland, J.Dejohnette) - 1975 @320

картинка, оставленная пользователем

John Abercrombie - guitar
Dave Holland - bass
Jack DeJohnette - drums

Recorded at Tonstudio Bauer, Ludwigsburg, Germany in March 1975. On GATEWAY, their first recording together, this trio of innovators did more than just cement the image of a group sound that would endure some twenty years hence. In the first days of Manfred Eicher's label, they helped define some of the parameters of what would become one of ECM's signature guitar sounds. On "May Dance," a simple modal theme soon gives way to expressive, telepathic free improvisations, as DeJohnette's crystalline cymbal textures shade in and around the beat--playing in and out of time; meanwhile, Holland's muscular lines anticipate and support each complex rhythmic variation. Abercrombie extends on their tumultuous dialogue with a canny array of textures, harmonic contrasts and polytonal melodic lines. On "Unshielded Desire" the drummer engages Abercrombie in a furious dialogue, while on DeJohnette's "Sorcery 1" the trio moves from roiling waves of sound to a fat, rocking vamp worthy of Jimi Hendrix's Experience.

Gateway II (John Abercrombie,D.Holland,J.Dejohnette) - 1977 @320

John Abercrombie - guitars
Dave Holland - bass
Jack DeJohnette - drums

John Abercrombie, Dave Holland and Jack Dejohnette reunited in the second offering of the Gateway trio. The music on this CD is more intriguing than their first offering, and is glued together more closely than before. Dejohnette's rolling drums is met with Holland's thoughtful and bold bass lines, providing a rich landscape for Abercrombie's lucid lines on the guitar.    The magic between the three players is obvious from the first track "Opening": thumping bass and drums underlying Abercrombie's avant-garde guitar improvisations slowly but surely building in collective improvisation. In "Sing Song", one of my favourite tunes, Abercrombie's craftily contructed melodic lines is counterbalanced by Holland's warm embrace on the bass, giving a very sentimental dialog rounded up with Dejohnette's lyrical lines on the drums.    This album is a glimpse at the future of jazz from the 70's: very sparse structures building itself through contructive communication between the players in real-time. Simply a timeless classic that I keep finding myself back to again and again.    Bassist Dave Holland and drummer Jack DeJohnette have often worked together since their early work with Miles Davis, and they're one of the most accomplished rhythm sections in jazz--fluent, inventive players who add something special to every situation they're heard in. The Gateway trio with guitarist John Abercrombie, though, is one of their most effective vehicles, with an open sound that reveals every detail and encourages an interactive approach. Each member is a gifted improviser, and they're willing to trust spontaneous forms, setting this 1977 session in motion with the extended "Opening," a long group improvisation launched by DeJohnette's detailed drumming. The interplay is just as arresting on the more formal pieces. Abercrombie's "Sing Song" floats at a medium tempo, and the guitarist plays with singing and sustained clarity before Holland solos with a forceful precision. Holland's "Nexus" is an accelerated stream of particles in motion, while "Reminiscences," with almost acoustic guitar, and "Blue," with DeJohnette on piano, are reflective moments enlivened by the same close listening.

1. Opening (16:19)
2. Reminiscence (4:36)
3. Sing Song (6:57)
4. Nexus (7:58)
5. Blue (8:14)

Abercrombie, Erskine,Mintzer, Patitucci - The Hudson Project - 2000

Review by Ed Kopp     
In 1998, the D'Addario Company hired four respected jazz veterans — Bob Mintzer (tenor sax), John Abercrombie (electric guitar), John Patitucci (acoustic and electric basses) and Peter Erskine (drums) — to conduct a series of concerts/clinics together. The four adopted the group name the Hudson Project, and their final engagement was recorded and is now available on video and CD. The sound is impeccable on this 48-track digital recording, and the music weaves many  textures, reflecting the talent and experience of four exemplary jazzers. The music is loose but sophisticated, falling somewhere between free fusion and modern mainstream jazz. While the solos are sometimes longer than you'd hear at a typical club performance, the    playing is highly accomplished. Each musician contributes a pair of tunes, with Abercrombie's offerings the only pieces never recorded elsewhere.  Mintzer's two songs are the CD's high points. The opener, "Runferyerlife,” is a furious bop excursion that has Abercrombie's slinky guitar ricocheting off Mintzer's racing sax. The CD closes with Mintzer's “Modern Day Tuba,” a lively modern jazz workout with intense playing by all four players. Prominent here is the polyrhythmic performance by Erskine and the wildly intricate guitar solo by Abercrombie. Abercrombie's composition “Little Swing” tends toward the thoughtful, while his tune “That's for Sure” is influenced by country music. The catchy track “Cats + Kittens” is fueled by Erskine's funky second-line drumming, while Patittuci's “The Well” is a lyrical, almost spiritual piece. Despite the impromptu feel of the proceedings, all four musicians coordinate well together. Abercrombie's free guitar work is a nice complement to Minter's straight-ahead blowing, and Patittuci and Erskine show why they're regarded as two of the most accomplished players on their respective instruments. Here's hoping this ad hoc supergroup decides to reunite in the not-too-distant future.
any chance of reupping "JOHN ABERCROMBIE: CHARACTERS" pls?
