Rempis Percussion Quartet, the – “Circular Logic ” – [Utech]

Jazz on fire! Rising star Chicago saxophonist Dave Rempis leads his quartet through two long pieces, 36 and 22 minutes, of stormy improvised jazz. One of the two drummers is Tim Daisy, Rempis’ cohort in Triage and Vandermark 5. The other drummer Frank Rosaly and bassist Anton Hatwich are new to me. Rempis works alto, tenor, and baritone on Track 1, and sticks to baritone on Track 2. He plays some startling stuff on top of crazy rhythms from the drummers and a solid heartbeat from the bassist. Each piece morphs several times along the way, with the leader nudging the ensemble this way and that, from duet interplay to free jazz wall of sound to Sexmob-style funkiness to percussion workouts, etc.
