Drummer Andrew Cyrille is probably best known for his long association with the avant-garde pianist Cecil Taylor. He has previously appeared on ECM and Watt albums by saxophonist Marion Brown (Afternoon of a Georgia Faun, 1970), Carla Bley (European Tour 1977, 1978), The Jazz Composer's Orchestra (originally on JCOA, 1968), and most recently on Ben Monder's Amorphae (2016). He makes his ECM leader debut here with this quartet with guitarist Bill Frisell, keyboardist Richard Teitelbaum and bassist Ben Street.
This album is the first time the quartet came together as a unit, but they have history. Cyrille and Frisell played on a session led by Danish guitarist Jakob Bro; the drummer has recorded three albums with Street as part of Danish pianist Soren Kjaergaard's trio; and his association with synthesist Teitelbaum goes back to the 1970s. Teitelabaum is best known for live electronic music and synthesizer performance; he was a founding member of the seminal Italian group Musica Elettronica Viva. The opening track is an abstract version of John Coltrane's "Coltrane Time," a direct reference to Cyrille's long career as an avant-garde jazz drummer. The solo drum introduction uses a rhythm he learned from drummer Rashied Ali, who learned it from Coltrane himself. After the rest of the group enters they quickly put their own stamp on it.
