Idyl Wild (Origin Records) by Jon Hamar

Editor's Comments
Rolls along gently. Nice complement of saxophones and bass.

Following last year's "Hymn," which featured the Seattle bassist in an intimate trio with saxophonist Todd DelGiudice and pianist Geoff Keezer, Hamar hits here with an open-ended, double saxophone quartet. DelGiudice returns on alto and he's matched with the remarkable New York tenor saxophonist, Rich Perry, who together provide wide-ranging contrapuntal intrigue for Hamar and drummer Julian MacDonough to play against. "Idyl Wild" properly suggests the musical landscape of this new collection - a controlled burn, slow simmer, extravagance or beauty with a hint of volitilty, carefree risk-taking laden with abundant opportunity.


Rich Perry: tenor saxophone; Todd DelGiudice: alto saxophone; Jon Hamar: bass; Julian MacDonough: drums.
