I saw part of this Trio's set last summer at Undead Jazzfest. It was nice to get a whole set now. There was a 2nd set, but I couldn't stay. It was great. I was mesmerized by Tyshawn.
When I saw them at Sullivan Hall last summer, I mainly got the "up" parts. Getting a whole set this time, I enjoyed the "mellow" parts and saw how much depth they have. It's a great Trio with great music.
Ingrid Laubrock, tenor sax;
Kris Davis, piano;
Tyshawn Sorey, drums
Paradoxical Frog is a group that sees Drummer Tyshawn Sorey, pianist Kris Davis and reedist Ingrid Laubrock, all extremely thoughtful and engaging composer-improvisers, join forces.All three musicians contribute their own unmistakable compositions to the group's sound which are woven together by improvisations using a wide range of dynamics, density and expression. The music is spontaneous yet deliberate, thought provoking yet trance- inducing.
[…] a wowingly sensitive encounter with mostly-free but sometimes creatively structured music of the moment, and one of the most memorable sets of the festival.-- Joseph Woodard , Jazz Times (about a performance at the 2010 Moers Jazz Festival)
