Album Review

Gray, Devin – “Dirigo Rataplan” – [Skirl]

Cousin Mary   4/6/2012   CD, Jazz

Drummer Devin Gray leads this quartet of New York jazz heavies through some free jazz with occasional nods to traditional licks. Ellery Eskelin on tenor, Dave Ballou on trumpet, Michael Formanek on bass add to the fluttery, spare, slowish pieces. Nice compositions lean toward simplistic and minimal.

PGM: Nice cymbal solo on track 4 around 4:45.
