Machaut Man and a Superman Hat
Featuring a handpicked ensemble of New York’s finest jazz interpreters, this masterful album is a rigorous, fully focused statement from one of Rattle's most assured artists.
The music of Dave Lisik is always challenging, but the musicians assembled for this album approach the material with great confidence and focus, delivering exceptional ensemble work and solos alike. "When players of this calibre are willing to share their amazing musicality, it is quite a remarkable experience,” says Lisik. “These are some of the best jazz musicians anywhere. They know each other well, so they share a really strong group dynamic.”
Featuring Donny McCaslin (sax), Alex Sipiagin (trumpet), Dave Kikoski (piano), Boris Kozlov (bass), Donald Edwards (drums)
