About the Artist

Mark Turner, who found his own style after exhaustive study of the musical methodologies of Coltrane and Marsh, has become one of the most influential saxophonists of his generation. After recording leader dates (for Warner Brothers and Criss-Cross), Turner co-founded the trio Fly with Larry Grenadier and Jeff Ballard in 2004 and has continued to tour widely with the group.

Ethan Iverson is well-known as a member of "avant-garde populist" group The Bad Plus, praised by New York magazine for its "alchemist's blend of earnestness and wit". He has also played with Lee Konitz, Dewey Redman, Tim Berne, Paul Motian and others. Iverson writes about music and its contexts on his blog Do The Math.

Ben Street studied bass with Dave Holland and Miroslav Vitous. He has performed and toured with Danilo Perez, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Roswell Rudd, Sam Rivers, Paul Motian, Lee Konitz, David Sanchez, James Moody, Frank Foster, Clark Terry, Junior Cook, and others.

Billy Hart's rich history includes stints with Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner and many others. A vast discography incorporates sessions with Miles Davis for "On The Corner" and "Big Fun".

Product Description

The quartet heard here was formed in 2003, and originally billed as the Ethan Iverson/Mark Turner Quartet. When Billy Hart asked if it could be his band for a gig in his hometown of Montclair, New Jersey, the other members unanimously voted to give it him permanently. As the Billy Hart Quartet, the four musicians have continued to play a number of dates each year, often at New York's Village Vanguard. In 2005 the group recorded a well-received debut album for hard-bop label High Note. Since then, as Ethan Iverson notes, the music has become more free and spacious, qualities that fit well with ECM's priorities. "All Our Reasons" was recorded in June 2011 at New York's Avatar Studios, with Manfred Eicher producing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A DARKLY GLOWING JEWEL April 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD
All Our Reasons is Hart's debut as a leader for ECM, but he's certainly no stranger to the label, appearing on ECM dates beginning with Bennie Maupin's 1974 Jewel In The Lotus and several releases as a member of Charles Lloyd's quartet. With this release Hart has conjured a darkly glowing jewel of his own. Downplaying himself as a soloist, the focus is on the overall sound of the group, and what a beautiful sound it is.

Each member of this quartet is integral to the finished sound; to replace any one of them would change the lay of the land considerably. Tenorist Mark Turner has a sound so darkly burnished it has become unmistakable. Turner emerged as a leader of his own groups at a young age. A disc for CrissCross was followed by a Warner Bros. contract that yielded several discs. It has been a number of years since his last effort as a leader, but Turner has been anything but idle. His sideman work seems to appear everywhere and his talents have him in all types of situations, from standards dates to navigating the thorny music of altoist David Binney, where Turner frequently completes the front line. Despite once having a major label contract the tenorist somehow managed to escape the whole "Young Lion" hoopla often heaped on jazz twenty-somethings. His quiet, almost reticent, demeanor perfectly matches his unassumingly lovely tone.

Pianist Ethan Iverson is himself no stranger to the major labels, his trio The Bad Plus having issued a string of releases on Columbia, and lately, EmArcy. Away from TBP, Iverson proves to be a thoughtful, incisive soloist and sensitive comper. His work on All Our Reasons proves to be surprisingly quiet, and a little less in evidence than on the previous Hart quartet date.

5.0 out of 5 stars DARK AND LIGHT March 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Pure Jazz. A great album. The music is intensive and beautifull. Dark and light. The musicians are great, specially Mark Turner on sax. probably this is his best record in years. Ethan Inverson (Bad Plus)come back to "tradicional" jazz and play excellent. Ben Street had beautifull solos and Billy Hart is really a master. The ECM production is perfect. Conclussion: a very deep and intensive jazz record. Perfect.We need CD like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome home, Billy Hart January 31, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful record. Mr. Hart's subtle percussives provide welcome contrast to the thunderous bombast of most modern drumming. He belongs on ECM beside Paul Motian (RIP). Thank heavens for Mark Turner and his brilliant tenor-ing here (and, seemingly, all over the freaking place these days).

Billy Hart's (and company) reasons are worth considering. All of them. Git to it. Twenty seven hundred stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite Modern Jazz August 21, 2013
By alan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Quartet CD on High Note is good, but All Our Reasons sounds more rehearsed, better arranged, and more crisply played. I wish some of the songs had gone on longer.Don't miss this one!
