Suitcase (Origin Records) by Jeff Johnson

Editor's Comments
The seedy bassline (think Massive Attack's, "Safe from Harm"), the tripped over keys, the jumpstart sax, the tired drums. Evokes never- ending overload.

As a teen, bassist Jeff Johnson was inspired by Ernest Hemingway and his way of writing from experience, giving rich, human impressions of events surrounding him. Johnson uses that inspiration as a guide on "Suitcase" as a way to more vividly convey his life experiences through composition and storytelling. Having forged a deeply creative improvisational partnership over the last twenty years with saxophonist Hans Teuber, his decision to team here with newer musical partners - pianist Steve Moore and drummer Eric Eagle - creates a lively balance of the well-known and less-known to assure there will always be more chapters to be written.
