Recensione album

Pianist Ethan Iverson and tenor saxophonist Bill McHenry focus on quirky readings of standards in this co-led band, which they've unofficially named "Sub-Standard." The quartet is completed by bassist Reid Anderson and drummer Jeff Williams, both of whom supply a kind of perpetually off-kilter rhythmic feel underneath the two adventurous soloists. The music's in tempo, but not quite — Anderson rarely walks a bassline, for instance, instead reacting to the entire band in unpredictable ways. Loosely speaking, on records this style has been Iverson's calling card more than McHenry's, although the tenorist has no problem fitting right in. Recorded live at Smalls in New York, the album boasts a good, intimate sound. The band begins with a loopy Latin treatment of "Night and Day," and proceeds to offer similarly off-the-wall readings of "Have You Met Miss Jones" and "How High the Moon," making a point of deforming these played to death vehicles. In a more rueful mood, they render the lesser-known standard "In Love In Vain" and the ballad "You've Changed." McHenry's entrance on the latter is so exquisitely high and soft that it could be mistaken for a flute. The more unusual repertoire choices are Howard Goodal's "Theme from 'Mr. Bean,'" which oddly enough sounds like something Bill McHenry would write, and Burt Bacharach's "The Look of Love," played with a satisfying faithfulness to the written melody. Closing the set is McHenry's "Blues Coda," which, along with Ornette Coleman's "Chronology," represents the most modern portion of the set, at least in authorial terms. But Iverson and McHenry do all they can to make everything — even the moldiest standard — sound modern, in their distinctive sense of the term. ~ David R. Adler, Rovi

Jazz pianist Ethan Iverson's classically informed writing and playing have similarities to Brad Mehldau. Claiming influences as disparate as Stravinsky and Ornette Coleman, the Wisconsin-raised Iverson displayed great potential at a rather young age. In 1991, he relocated to New York, eventually beginning private studies with Fred Hersch and Sophia Rosoff. He made his recording debut in 1993 at age 20 with School Work, a disc that featured tenor saxophone giant Dewey Redman. Iverson has since worked...
