Monder, Ben - Dust

"Anyone who has yet to experience Ben Monder is in for a real treat. A long-standing member of the Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra, this guy possesses a gift for composition that is equal to his improvisational gift, which, as far as I'm concerned, is unparalleled by any other guitarist I've ever heard. Ben is a miracle. That fact is made evident on every single track of "Dust". This music is not about "chops", although Ben's got technique that the rest of (the world) can only dream of; it is, rather, about the exploration and execution of the ingredients that make great music, and there are melodies and harmonies here that will haunt as well as inspire (check out "In Memoriam"). As for Ben Street (bass) and Jim Black (drums and percussion), these two obviously share the same muse with Ben as their individual ideas blend marvellously together with the guitarist's to create a cohesive and unified sound. This album is a must for anyone who knows and loves truly great music." Ben Monder - guiitar, Ben Street - bass, Jim Black - drums and percussion.
