ClandestineDavid Haney (Piano), Andrew Cyrille (Drums), Dominic Duval (Mallets)This isn't the first time David Haney and Andrew Cyrille have worked together, but these two sessions are the first time they have recorded together. With David, one can always expect the unexpected, whether it be Free Jazz, excursions, or an exploration of a traditional Blues. With Andrew one has come to expect simply the best in musical inventiveness. CIMP 367 is a duo; the addition of the substantial presence of bassist Dominic Duval changes the whole dynamic (as it should) on CIMP 369. To further emphasize the differences, five of the compositions appear on both the duo and the trio sessions. Hear and analyze this bracing and embracing music. Canticles for the New MillenniumJay Rosen (Drums), Vinny Golia (Clarinet), Paul Smoker (Trumpet), Mark Whitecage (Moosecall)Jay Rosen, sensitive and dynamic drummer on many fine CIMP sessions, steps out for his debut as a leader and it's impressive. Leading a bassless quartet made up of some of today's most dymnamic players, he not only lifts and drives some intense music but manages to integrate his dynamics in both a supportive and take-charge way. Rosen with Golia, Smoker, and Whitecage: a gutsy move with wondrous results. Recorded Sept. 1 & 2, 1999.
