Editorial Reviews

For a decade jazz cornetist Josh Berman has been a mainstay of the post-Vandermark generation of Chicago improvisers, a wide circle of ambitious musicians who meet up in varied ad hoc or fixed settings: a circle including all the players in Josh's group Old Idea. He's already recorded some as part of a quartet on Chicago-Luzern Exchange alongside tenor saxophonist Keefe Jackson, with Jackson's big and small bands Project Project and Fast Citizens, with Jason Adasiewicz's quintet Rolldown and Rob Mazurek's Exploding Star Orchestra. Old Idea is Josh's debut CD as leader. With Keefe Jackson - tenor sax; Jason Adasiewicz - vibes; Anton Hatwich - bass; Nori Tanaka - drums.

Every once in a while, an obvious fact comes along and manages to catch my attention. I have been listening to this CD for the last few days, trying to figure out a way to avoid making a comparison I having been using all too much of late, i.e., that Josh Berman's Old Idea CD is comparable to the astoundingly consistent great music that Blue Note was putting out in the mid-60s by artists like Andrew Hill, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Jackie McLean, Bobby Hutcherson, etc.
And then while listening to this CD again, the obvious went all chin na on me and forced me to this conclusion: Embrace the comparison.
For what we have been witnessing from Chicago for the last five or so years is almost the exact same phenomena that those mid-60s Blue Notes documented. We are witnessing a superbly talented generation of musicians come together in one city. They are working together in loose assembles that mutated constantly to meet the demands of compositional experimentation. They are recording the results of all that research and effort on several labels [482 Music with its essential Document Chicago series, Delmark (to whom I will always be grateful for its documentation of the early AACM) and Clean Feed (the best label of the last few years)]. We are blessed to be witnessing the creative blossoming of one of the strongest congregations of musicians in a long long time.
Creative Improv (my preferred term for jazz because it eliminates smooth jazz among other travesties) always is at its strongest in schools, collectives, communities. And there has been no greater community for the music in recent years than Chicago.
On to the Berman CD.

Format: Audio CD
Josh Berman's "Old Idea" CD is actually a mixture of old and new ideas. The song forms are traditional, but there is more freedom than in a typical traditional jazz disc. Keefe Jackson's unorthodox saxophone is one example. Jason Adasiewicz's spacy vibes, on the other hand, push things towards the 60's. This tension between old and new leads to some good things on this disc. This is a pretty good disc from these Chicago players, but Berman's trumpet playing isn't enough to raise it out of the lower half of 4-star discs.
