Editorial Reviews

Mutual Admiration Society 2 celebrates the reuniting of vibist Joe Locke and pianist David Hazeltine, and marks the ten year anniversary of their highly acclaimed 1999 Mutual Admiration Society release. In the intervening ten years the careers of these two multitalented artists have blossomed so that they are now acknowledged as major stylists on their respective instruments. As with the original session, the band seeks to explore the limits of the straight-ahead tradition with a wide range of originals and arrangements of covers tunes (Jimmy Rowles' The Peacocks and Stevie Wonder's If It's Magic).

Format: Audio CD
On a cold day in February 2009, the Joe Locke-David Hazeltine Quartet entered a Brooklyn studio and laid down some hard swinging, heart-warming music for the group's second Sharp Nine release. The first Mutual Admiration Society CD from 1998 was a fine recording, but Mutual Admiration Society 2 may be even better and shows how even top flight musicians continue to grow and develop their musical gifts.

Locke on vibes and Hazeltine on piano share the leadership of the CD as equals, and each contributes three original tunes. These men are on the same musical wave-length and blend together magically on the heads of the tunes. With this particular instrumentation, the music could possibly be played softly in the background, but this is far more than background music. This is very sophisticated modern jazz music which unfolds more and more for the attentive listener with each spin. The originals sometimes use advanced compositional devices such as modes and twelve tone rows. The heads of these tunes are often spiky and complex, but once the solo choruses are reached it's straight-ahead swinging all the way. "Pharoah's Joy" and "Convocation" by Locke and Hazeltine's "Twelve" are excellent examples of this process. The transition from advanced heads to straight ahead blowing, setting up tension and then releasing it, is what makes this music so interesting and delightful. The ballads "The Peacocks" by Jimmy Rowles and Stevie Wonder's "If It's Magic" provide a change of pace from the originals. The haunting Rowles tune is perfect for this instrumentation and will stick in your mind long after the CD has finished playing.
