NEW YORK, February 27, 2012 -
Trombonist Conrad Herwig, known for "Latinizing" the classic
compositions of jazz greats John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Herbie
Hancock and Wayne Shorter, among others, presents "The Tip of the
Sword," a vital new release
featuring Richie Beirach and Jack DeJohnette.
It is a couragous recording - freely interactive, oftentimes
fierce - that focuses on daring improvisation within a trio context. It showcases 7 originals and it couples Herwig with one of jazz's legendary figures (pianist Beirach graced the leader's first recording in 1987), and a pioneering NEA Jazz Master (drummer DeJohnette, who continues to push the boundaries of jazz and world music expression).
Herwig has long been regarded as an advanced writer, arranger and educator. He is a 3-time Grammy nominee (on Latin adaptations of Coltrane, Davis and Shorter), and his discography boasts 20 titles as a leader. On "The Tip of the Sword" he breaks free of idiomatic constraints, revisiting an improvisatory approach. It is a progressive document, capturing a trio without safety nets, showcasing an uncommonly adventurous and free-wheeling spirit.
