Live at 800 East Be­hip Records

★★★

Men­tored at New York Univer­sity by John Scofield and Ge­orge Gar­zone, bassist Michael Fein­berg is part of a new gen­er­a­tion for whom the old di­vi­sions of genre or style are largely ir­rel­e­vant. Fein­berg’s pre­vi­ous projects have re­volved around his ap­pre­ci­a­tion for drum­mer Elvin Jones. For this “live in the stu­dio” record­ing he has called on a mod­ern mas­ter of the drum set – Terreon Gully, whose taut blend of funk, hip-hop and jazz rhythms drives Fein­berg’s band of young lions along with fire and en­ergy. Fein­berg’s orig­i­nal ma­te­rial is fresh and re­fresh­ingly free of empty com­plex­ity, giv­ing his group, which in­cludes Mile­sian trum­peter Billy Buss and ris­ing pi­anist Ju­lian Shore, ma­te­rial that they can stretch out on with­out get­ting lost in tech­nique. michaelfein­berg mu­sic.com
