Jason Lindner
Ab Aeterno
World Jazz/Fresh Sounds

By Tom Orr

Published April 27, 2007

Even if you're not particularly interested in the cultural and/or historical reasons why the music of Africa, Latin America and the Middle East share common ground, feel free to enjoy how expertly Jason Lindner (piano, melodica, mbira), Omer Avital (contrabass, oud) and Luisito Quintero (percussion) bring the three together with a freeflowing jazz feel on Ab Aeterno. Fusion albums of this sort too often fall victim to tedium, the participants doing more noodling about than meaningful playing. Not so here. The players do explore a bit between locked-in moments, but when they're all on the same page they engage in quietly explosive musical dialogue that's truly symbiotic. Lindner’s piano leads the way most of the time, cutting a trail that his collaborators mark with richly realized melodic lines and tart accents. Some of the pieces build slowly before tying it all together, but everything here eventually sizzles. Well done.
