Billy Hart Quartet
As the veteran drummer’s foursome develops, the grace they broker becomes more essential to its personality. Can’t say if it’s the lithe horn lines of Mark Turner or the well-chosen asides of pianist Ethan Iverson, but the music on the newish One Is The Other has the kind of sweep that connects each passage to the next – it almost seems like one long piece. Of course Hart’s mastery at keeping everything fluid has a lot to do with it. On stage they’re a bit more tactile – and that physicality can be revelatory. Don’t miss.
