Album Review

Belogenis, Louie Trio – “Tiresias” – [Porter Records]

lombard   8/2/2011   CD, Jazz

Music takes us to another plane, stirs up emotion, and can be transcendent. Jazz, in particular, always reminds me of a conversation amongst the players and as a listener I often feel like I’m eavesdropping on their interactions. In this 2011 release from a session recorded in May 2008, The Louie Belogenis Trio hashes it out as the late Belogenis’ tenor saxophone battles it out with Michael Bisio’s bass and Sunny Murray’s drums. It begins with fluttery dramatic bass on “When Darkness Fell,” and is accented by the tension of the drums and sax. Sax stars on “Blind Prophecy,” as drums fill out the piece, building to a crescendo as the bass peeks out of the shadows. “Divination” feels a bit saucy like a ’50s jazz dive and there’s even a cover of Coltrane’s “Alabama.”
