John Abercrombie: The Third Quartet

Read "The Third Quartet" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski


Most ECM albums are not only about the notes that are played, but the space between those notes. The label's trademark contemporary sound shines through on prodigal guitarist John Abercrombie's The Third Quartet. Abercrombie is an immediately recognizable musician on that most overplayed of instruments, and the result is an album of extraordinary transcendence that defies ...

John Abercrombie: The Third Quartet

Read "The Third Quartet" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone


This album is so named since it is the third recording of these four musicians and by far it is the most impressive. Previous meetings Cat 'n' Mouse (ECM, 2002) and Class Trip (ECM, 2004) were less impressive. Guitarist John Abercrombie has been recording for ECM since the early 1970s and has produced a prodigious volume ...

John Abercrombie Quartet: The Third Quartet

Read "The Third Quartet" reviewed by Martin Gladu


John Abercrombie may well become the most recorded guitarist in jazz history--his discography being rather generous, to say the least. His collaboration with ECM spans three decades and counts over twenty solo albums with diverse formations and line-ups. Of those, the trios with organist Dan Wall and drummer Alan Nussbaum as well as Gateway (with drummer ...

John Abercrombie: The Third Quartet

Read "The Third Quartet" reviewed by Jim Santella


With this quartet's third album, John Abercrombie interprets a program of eight original compositions plus “Round Trip by Ornette Coleman and “Epilogue by pianist Bill Evans. The choices show where this modern mainstream guitarist comes from, as the quartet's session pulls from jazz's creative tradition: rich in harmonic surprises and yet free and unique. ...

John Abercrombie: The Third Quartet

Read "The Third Quartet" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


There is a continuum in jazz, as in most music genera, which extends from the most rigidly defined and precisely contained performance to the antithetically free and fully open recital. To offer examples of the former, one might consider swing era big band music of the Glenn Miller ilk. The latter is embodied in John Coltrane's ...

John Abercrombie: The Third Quartet

Read "The Third Quartet" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Terzo album per questo stellare quartetto, sulla carta capitanato dal chitarrista John Abercrombie (autore di quasi tutte le composizioni), ma di fatto assolutamente paritetico con Mark Feldman al violino, Marc Johnson al contrabbasso e Joey Baron alla batteria. Del resto, quando ci si confronta con musicisti di questo calibro, tutte stelle di prima grandezza del firmamento ...

John Abercrombie: The Third Quartet

Read "The Third Quartet" reviewed by Budd Kopman


John Abercrombie has recorded for ECM since 1973 (Dave Liebman's Lookout Farm (ECM, 1974)) and has credits on about fifty albums as a leader, beginning with Timeless (ECM, 1975), co-leader and sideman. The Third Quartet is the third (unsurprisingly) record by this quartet comprised of Abercrombie on guitar, violinist Mark Feldman, bassist Marc Johnson and drummer ...

John Abercrombie: The Third Quartet

Read "The Third Quartet" reviewed by John Kelman


John Abercrombie's group recordings on ECM have often come in threes. The Third Quartet, his latest featuring violinist Mark Feldman, bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joey Baron, is an apt (and obvious) title, but hopefully not a sign that this is the end of this group's winning streak. Since forming in 2000 it's evolved into one ...
