Dresser, Mark - Aquifer

"Mark Dresser is a remarkably innovative bassist who has few equals in the downtown jazz scene. He's carved out this reputation through his work in Anthony Braxton's great quartet from the '80s and early '90s and through countless sideman gigs with just about everyone. Dresser's own music usually lands on the more cerebral end of the downtown jazz scene, integrating more of a modern classical edge. But he can swing his way through arching melodies, and isn't afraid to look to other cultures for musical inspiration either. Also featuring talented flutist Matthias Ziegler and inventive hyperpianist Denman Maroney, Aquifer is a fluid three-way conversation of avant-garde chamber jazz where the melodies and arrangements are angular while remaining organic. The music's tone ranges from the chilling title track to the jubilant "FLAC" to the bluesy "Modern Pine." Beautiful and sophisticated, Aquifer is nice effort from a great bassist and his crew."-Tad Hendrickson
