Joe Locke and David Hazeltine will be bringing their "Mutual
Admiration Society" quartet to SMOKE January 29-31 (thur-sat), in
preparation for a return to the recording studio by this critically-acclaimed
29-31, 2009 / sets:
8pm, 10pm, 11:30pm
True magic doesn’t happen all that
often, not even to labels with high artistic and sonic standards
like Sharp Nine. But on a September day in 1998, the Muse spoke to
everyone in Systems Two Studio in Brooklyn, starting with engineer
Mike Marciano. His analog recording captures the complex sonorities
of the vibraphone with an exactitude that has never been surpassed.
Locke and Hazeltine play as if shot into this session from cannons.
Their commingling of piano and vibes has orchestral sweep, harmonic
density, crisp clarity, and merciless swing. Torrential creativity
overwhelms and accelerates nominal ballads like “Spring Will Be a
Little Late This Year” and “For All We Know.”
