Album Description

The best new music often comes from the fortunate timely union and reunion of master musicians. The Ernst Bier - Mack Goldsbury Quartet with Herb Robertson is made up of players whose musical paths have been crisscrossing for over two decades. They have traveled virtually every musical avenue, street, path and back alley that traverses the landscape of 20th century music, and have been intimately involved with music and musicians that have left their mark on the latter part of the 20th century. The music on this CD reflects the influences of bop, swing, blues, avant-garde, contemporary classic, while casting a light onto the virgin grounds of the 21st century. The album was recorded in the summer of '98, directly after Herb's joining the group, and immediately following a week-long gig in the A Trane, Berlin's top jazz club. The week was the necessary warm-up for the recording of music that requires group understanding and commitment. The band's approach to the music is communal, and Goldsbury, Robertson, Möbus, and Schuller all contribute compositions.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
