Editorial Reviews

Landmarks, the fourth recording by Brian Blade & The Fellowship Band, marks their return to Blue Note Records, released in cooperation with the Shreveport, Louisiana based label, Mid-City Records. Brian chose to record seven of the ten compositions in his hometown of Shreveport at Blade Studios which was opened in 2011 by Brian's older brother, the drummer and producer Brady Blade, Jr. Shreveport is an inland port city situated 40 miles south of Arkansas, 20 miles east of Texas, and 100 miles north of the Gulf Coast and its location makes it a sonic catchment basin for various Afro-diasporic strains gospel, rhythm-and-blues, the blues as such and various iterations of jazz and vernacular folk idioms that developed indigenously in the surrounding territories.

As on each prior Fellowship Band release, Blade and pianist Jon Cowherd refract these impressions into their own musical poetry, with an ear to the individualistic styles of Myron Walden (alto saxophone, bass clarinet), Melvin Butler (soprano and tenor saxophone) and Chris Thomas (bass). For the recording of Landmarks, Marvin Sewell and Jeff Parker are on guitars. Excepting the guitarists, The Fellowship Band has remained a unit since their eponymous 1998 debut and its 2000 follow-up, Perceptual, both on Blue Note. You can hear it in the cohesion and exploratory spirit of their collective and individual interpretations, orchestrated and propelled by the leader s in-the-moment beats and textures.

I have had this CD less than a week and I have gone back to listen to it three times. It is like listening to a conversation done in music. There is just the right amount of give and take between these musicians. For a drummer led band there at least two tracks that have no drums, which is way cool.

The CD has a very atmospheric vibe to it. In short spurts it sometimes reminds of Miles Davis with Gil Evans Orchestra. It has a great mix of short interstitial pieces and extended songs.

This was my first purchase of a Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band. I am glad I did. Now it is time to get up to speed with their back catalog.

Now I found several new jazz records very soft and deep. I though that the musicians try to get a very special mood very intimate, very close to the heart. It's not jazz for hear in clubs, even not to hear with other people, are works to hear alone. I feel this is music very near to the ground. This one is the perfect example of this kind of music. Is the fourth album of Brian Blade and Fellowship Band. Are the same musicians plus Marvin Swell on guitar and I love the incredible peace of his music. Blade is a great drummer, Melvin Butler is perfect on saxophones, Jon Cowherd on piano and Chris Thomas on bass, but the really important is the music, the spirit of his music. A great record for your pleasure only.

As much as I am a fan of Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band, due to the absence of Kurt Rosenwinel I feel this album falls short to its predecessors. Kurt brought so much energy to the group, its just not the same without him. Hope he comes back!!!
