Stephan Crump & Steve Lehman+Liberty Ellman Trio
Bassist Crump has proven himself as a rhythmic agitator with Vijay Iyer's provocative trio. He's dropped a couple of engaging duet discs lately, including the new Kaleidoscope and Collage, with equally daring saxophonist Lehman. The record is an open excursion: some passages are rich with gnarled twists while others are sparse, making hay with innuendo rather than invective. Guitarist Ellman's trio is a marvel as well, cleverly spinning spiderwebs from a crosshatch of shadowy lines.
