Fly: Sky & Country

Read "Sky & Country" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Già nell'album d'esordio (Fly - Savoy Jazz) uno dei tratti peculiari di questa sorta di supertrio era la cura meticolosa, l'attenzione quasi maniacale rivolta al suono. In questo Sky & Country, la produzione di Manfred Eicher ha spostato ancor di più le coordinate in quella direzione. Da una parte ciò ha permesso di esaltare ulteriormente lo ...

Fly: Sky & Country

Read "Sky & Country" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson


The near-unanimous acclaim that has greeted Fly's sophomore effort (and ECM debut) tends to see the trio as a second coming of the legendary Bill Evans Trio that recorded the classic Waltz for Debby and Sunday at the Village Vanguard (Riverside, 1961). That's the way people are talking about the record, anyway.The record doesn't ...

Fly: Sky & Country

Read "Sky & Country" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza


Mark Turner, Jeff Ballard and Larry Grenadier first played together in 2000 as the Jeff Ballard Trio. Since then they have performed in different groups. The long association has helped establish immediacy between them, a reading of the minds that translates into absorbing music. All three have contributed compositions to Sky & Country, the ...

Fly: Sky & Country

Read "Sky & Country" reviewed by Jeff Stockton


15 years ago Mark Turner was among a trio of young tenors who were poised to have a lasting impact on jazz. However, having not had Joshua Redman's pedigree or James Carter's flair for self-promotion, Turner's major-label output came and went without generating the attention a musician of his caliber deserved. Today he is a member ...

Fly: Sky & Country

Read "Sky & Country" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


The trio Fly has been described as “two thirds of the Brad Mehldau Trio and a saxophonist." Not to diminish reed man Mark Turner--who is the other third of group--but as an acknowledgment of his band mates' higher profiles. And if the higher profiles of the other two thirds--bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard--pulls in ...

Fly: Sky & Country

Read "Sky & Country" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Oh, the modesty of the members of the trio known as Fly. They might just as well have called themselves Super Fly--their initial release for ECM Records is indeed special. Saxophonist Mark Turner, bassist Larry Grenadier, and drummer Jeff Ballard all contribute compositions to Sky & Country, which follows their debut, FLY (Savoy, 2004), ...

Fly: Sky & Country

Read "Sky & Country" reviewed by John Kelman


Despite a debut that failed to generate much noise, Fly's sophomore effort--its first for ECM- -ought to. Dispelling the ECM myth of neglecting American music, this trio--featuring perennially undervalued saxophonist Mark Turner alongside Brad Mehldau Trio mates, bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard-- finds its own nexus of head and heart. Dave Holland's Triplicate (ECM, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
