4.0 out of 5 stars Electro-Acoustic Improv. at it's finest March 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
"Demian as Posthuman" is saxophonist Steve Lehman's most experimental release to date. With a solid acoustic quintet record, "Artificial Light," and trio release, "Interface," under his belt, Lehman is also one third of the collaborative trio Fieldwork, whose "Simulated Progress" is easily one of 2005's best jazz releases. Lehman has upped the ante on this album, which dispenses with typical notions of jazz and popular music by combining the two in an effort to document the creation of a new, hybrid music.

Combining electronics and jazz is certainly nothing new, but truly successful projects are not the norm. For those jazz artists who see electronica and hip-hop as conceptual equals however, the results are generally more satisfying. Lehman is obviously a fan of popular music and as such his investigations into that realm are more solid and affecting than those artists who merely dabble to benefit from the marketplace.

Lehman put together a quintet in the summer of 2005 to record some abstract groove pieces. With pianist Vijay Iyer, bassist Meshell Ndegocello, DJ Jahi Lake and drummer Eric McPherson, Lehman recorded three tracks, "Vapors," Logic - Meshell" and "Community." These three cuts became the structural framework around which Lehman decided to construct his next record. With noted hip-hop producer, Scotty Hard and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, Lehman utilized overdubbing and studio technology to document a music that occupies a middle ground between the lands of jazz improvisation and the rhythms and timbres of hip-hop and electronica.

As expected, the three quintet tracks sound the most filled out. With an obvious nod to his M-Base schooling courtesy of frequent collaborator Vijay Iyer, Lehman takes these three pieces down familiar, yet invigorating territory.
