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.

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.

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.

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!
