Cosmologic - Staring at the Sun

While anyone who has heard Cuneiform's release by this great jazz quartet can attest, there's no way that they came out of nowhere with such a tight developed sound! However, in listening to these earlier albums, it still sounds like them and all their hallmarks are there; the great solos, the stop-on-a-dime compositional prowess, the terrific swing - it's all here! Start with the "Eyes in the Back of My Head" and if you love that one, you'll love this one too!

"Recorded live in 2000 after a half-year stretch of weekly gigs, Cosmologic's debut album captures the "intense peaks of clamorous excitement" and "near-spiritual communication" (Cadence Magazine) that has remained the band's hallmark ever since. With all original compositions that traverse the broad terrain of creative jazz and improvised music, Cosmologic weaves together high-energy playing, intense introspection, rich grooves, open textures, and collective alchemy. In praise of this debut, Coda Magazine writes that "with motivated and talented young musicians of this calibre, there's no doubt that jazz can be a creative force. Long gone are the days when things West Coast were considered pallid in relation to anything East Coast, and for any of the doubters out there, here's the proof positive."
