CHRIS CHEEK, tenor sax/ TONY MALABY, tenor sax/ CRAIG TABORN, piano/ CHRIS LIGHTCAP, bass/ GERALD CLEAVER, drums
"...a jazz supergroup ...Lightcap is channeling the bass thrum and compositional spirit of Charles Mingus, mixed with the genre daredevilry of Sex Mob or the Bad Plus." - Britt Robson, JazzTimes
KEN VANDERMARK, tenor sax/ KRIS DAVIS, piano/ ERIC REVIS, bass/ CHAD TAYLOR, drums
Revis playing is personal and distinctive: his tone deep and woody, his execution, agile, melodic and clear. A musical polyglot, Revis is comfortable in any setting, any direction. His skills as a band leader and composer are equally profound and inspiring.
ALBERT SANZ, piano/ JAVIER COLINA, bass/ AL FOSTER, drums
"Sanz has a wealth of good, unfamiliar songs in his armoury. With his strong musical personality, he is a pianist and arranger of real quality. He belongs alongside players of the class and the renown of Al Foster." - Sebastian Scotney, London Jazz News
ORRIN EVANS, piano/ ERIC REVIS, bass/ NASHEET WAITS, drums
"Tarbaby exists in an undocumentable realm. Regarding it on record is like playing with an action figure of a T-Rex. This is the kind of sweet, jovial thunder that you have to hear in nature." Hank Shteamer - Time Out NY
