Criss Cross Jazz 1391 CD
The Purity Of The Turf
Available: September 24, 2016
The Purity of the Turf is kind of a "bucket list" moment for
Ethan Iverson, who has always wanted to make a record with famous
bassist Ron Carter.
Iverson, pianist of the famous trio "The Bad Plus", chose drummer
Nasheet Waits to fill out the trio, because Waits represents the
avant-garde as well as swing.
Criss Cross records are level playing field, with everyone recording
in the same studio in a single day: Thus the sporting title,
"The Purity of the Turf".
The repertoire is mostly originals and jazz classics.
A surprise highlight is the solo piano tribute to the late Paul Bley,
"So Hard it Hurts" by Annette Peacock.
