Modirzadeh, Hafez – “Post-chromodal Out!” – [Pi Recordings]

Chromodality was developed by Iranian-American sax player and composer Modirzadeh to integrate Persian tones with the Western scale. Once the ears adjust to what initially sound like sour notes, this is enormously interesting and original free jazz. Nice work from all in the quartet, and some unusual instrument additions on tracks 4, 5, 8. 10, 16, and 17; still my attention tended to be drawn to Vijay Iyer’s piano. Modiirzadeh is a Professor of Music at San Francisco State.
