Avis sur l’album

On his own projects, pianist Eric Watson has always favored the solo and trio formats, seldom partnering with horn players — his collaboration with Steve Lacy being the one significant exception. For this session, tenor sax Bennie Wallace replaced trombonist Ray Anderson at the last minute. He acquits himself in style and his vibrant presence helps remove any of the dryness that sometimes mars Watson's music. The leader's own brand of romanticism tinged with mystery immediately transpires with the opening track, "Tryst." It is followed by the spirited "Wear and Tear" a complex angular composition firing in all directions and relying on incredible melodic invention. Some beautiful ballads such as the languorous "Dragonfly" prove to be the perfect backdrop for Wallace's legato playing. The music also incorporates some folk forms and never forgets to swing as on the title track, a piece that slowly evolves into a red-hot boogie. The session could not be a complete success without the contributions of bassist Mark Dresser and drummer Ed Thigpen. Dresser's unique style gives some additional character to the project, and Thigpen reminds us constantly that his nickname is "Mr. Taste." His understated accents are only surpassed by his listening skills. Full Metal Quartet is both one of the pianist's highest achievements, and the ideal starting point to sample his multifaceted talent.
