MUSIC REVIEW BY Georges Tonla Briquet, Jazz'halo

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Guitarist John Stowell (David Friesen, Tom Harrell, Billy Hart) and trombonist Dave Glenn (Chuck Mangione, The Mel Lewis Orchestra, Blood, Sweat and Tears) formed a kind of alliance with The Hawcaptak Quartet, not to really play together but to to jointly release a CD.

A somewhat different method because the duo recorded their parts in a different studio and at a different time than the string quartet. The twenty-one (usually) short pieces are almost all subdivided into an intro (performed by the strings) and the composition itself (played by guitarist and trombonist). So on the one hand they keep both worlds separate, but on the other they still link them to each other. Subdued chamber music is the common thread across the board.

A remarkable style exercise, but one with a logical uniformity.
