John Cratchley thumbnail
John Cratchley Three of Contemporary Jazz's great players,all band leaders in their own right,come together in a long-serving trio to give a masterclass of cutting edge interplay and extended technique...this music is all about abandoning ego for me...listening to each other intently,responding in the moment,building a collective response to musical ideas...recognising each others strengths and challenging them to achieve even greater outcomes.
We sometimes forget,perhaps,how profound a process this is...it demands our full attention.

about

Intakt CD 245

Everybody who is slightly interested in modern jazz knows the name of Mark Helias. The American double bass player has worked with everyone from Ed Blackwell, Don Cherry and Carlos Ward to Anthony Braxton, Muhal Richard Abrams and Cecil Taylor.

With Tom Rainey (dr) and Tony Malady (ts), Helias founded the trio OPEN LOOSE in 1996 to play his compositions which allow open form improvisation.

As the three musicians get familiar with the pieces they recompose them on the bandstand. "The most interesting developments come when we start altering the compositions in a creative way, maintaining the spirit of the piece but taking it somewhere else, into an unimagined place," says Helias. "Every time we come together it's different, it's new and wonderful."
