I really do not know why I like this unusual album. A jazz quartet augmented, depending on tracks, with vocalist, trumpet, and alto saxophone is an odd bird. Eight of the ten tracks are original compositions of Dayna Stephens, the leader and tenor saxophone player. By and large, it is abstract expressionism painted with rhythms, harmonies, phrases. A variety of moods arises: sometimes a cry, sometimes a protest, sometimes a cheer, sometimes a sigh. One aspect is quickly noticeable: each instrument is equal in volume, a balance of sound, each clear, none in the background or up front. Joe Sanders's bass is a full partner. The Morse Code frenzy of the first track is followed by a relaxed ballad-like flowing. The title track, Nepenthetic, may refer to the ancient forgetfulness drug to ward off sorrow, or the famous restaurant along California's Big Sur coast. A Walk in the Park, another somewhat gentle work, features the elegant, light piano work of Taylor Eigsti, who also adds the timbre of electric piano to the mix. The vocal, But Beautiful, sung slowly by Gretchen Parlato in loud strained breathy whisper, is picked up by the tenor saxophone. She adds vocalise to the next tune, Wink Wink, and Ambrose Akinmusisre's trumpet, heard in early tracks, meshes here with the saxophone. American Typhoon is an expected storm that aptly begins quietly and calmly but which never arrives despite a crescendo and instead fades into a "prepared" piano rain (or Eigsti plucking, like Jessica Williams, the strings as if a harp). Impressions, Coltrane's tune--and self-referential to the album's theme--is Akinmusire's forte. The piano next explores the territory. Jaleel Shaw's alto saxophone provides more color. The overlaying timbres, the intensity, and the concluding power is the storm the previous track promised. Dr.Read more ›
