“…an extraordinary session of creative ensemble interplay and free-wheeling improvisations.” —All About Jazz
Liam Sillery -][- Phenomenology – [OA2 Records, 2010]
With his 4th OA2 release, trumpeter Liam Sillery continues in the direction of his most recent album “Outskirts,” challenging both the musicians and the listener with intricate compositions and compelling improvisation. On “Phenomenology,” the band is reactive and supportive, while maintaining their individual personalities to constantly compliment the music.
Liam’s exploration of the sonic landscapes suggested by his compositions create a sense of melodic intrigue on the Kenny Wheeler-inspired “Koi” and the horn lines cartwheel through the backbeat of “Intentionality.” This recording no doubt helps solidify Sillery as “an important voice in 21st Century jazz” (Scott Yanow).
