I doubt you would get much argument that trumpet players Herb Robertson and Dave Ballou, bassist Drew Gress and drummer Tom Rainey are among the finest of their generation. When Robertson and Ballou decided to form a quartet back in 2005, those four musical minds coming together pretty much assured some magic would happen. In 2007 The MacroQuarktet was booked into The Stone in NY; the performance was their first public appearance and as it turned out, completely unrehearsed and unscripted. The first set of that night was released as Each Part Whole in 2009, but the second set was never released, until now. Out Of Your Head Records is releasing The Complete Night: Live at the Stone NYC, a double album that features that second set and a re-issue of the first. It's the feature recording this episode. Right next to that is a fine release by pianist Sebastien Ammann's Color Wheel called Resilience. Among other debuts are the German trio of Oli Steidle, Hannes Selig and Dan Nicholls, the Kenny Warren Trio and Chicago's Mako Sica featuring Hamid Drake.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
