Michael Formanek in concert in Brooklyn, February 9th
(Published: February 01, 2011)
Michael Formanek Quartet will perform at Littlefield on February 9th, 2011!!!
"Formanek's tunes are marvelous vehicles for these wonderful players to express a kind of group ethos and soar into new avenues of improvisation. [...] Formanek's compositions and the strength in expression he finds through this wonderful band's readings make for an amazing recording and, as usual, the ECM engineers have imbued it with exceptional clarity"
John Kelman - AllAboutJazz.com October 2010
ECM debut for Michael Formanek, whose formidable bass has propelled groups from the Mingus Big Band to Tim Berne's Bloodcount and has backed artists as diverse as Chet Baker and Elvis Costello. A bandleader and composer in his own right, he is heard here with some highly-talented colleagues in an outgoing program of his own pieces, whose unorthodox constructions set up strong solos and fiery group interaction.
