Mezzacappa, Lisa – “What Is Known” – [Clean Feed]
Hemroid The Leader 9/30/2015 CD, Jazz
Mezzacappa is a triple threat: female-bandleader, female-bassist, and bassist-bandleader. She calls Bait & Switch her “garage jazz quartet.” Collective improvisations, odd meters, jazz cats play rock’n’roll. Guitar tone is distorted, reverbless, sax screams passionately a la Rahsaan, drums subtle and controlled. Reminiscent of James “Blood” Ulmer, Sebadoh, Zappa. #5 Solo bass tune from Air (jazz group). #4 Captain Beefheart tune. #9 Mingus-esque, group wailing session into bass solo.
Related: Joelle Leandre is another excellent female bassist who has her name on the dates. Lots of other Clean Feed releases in the library. Other Mezzacappa releases.
Aaron Bennett- tenor sax. John Finkbeiner- guitar. Lisa Mezzacappa- bass. Vijay Anderson- drums.
