About the album

Veteran Seattle bassist Chuck Deardorf brings together longtime musical friends and compatriots for this album, filled with spontaneous interaction, gritty grooves and melodic beauty. With the quartet of pianist Dawn Clement, drummer Matt Wilson and saxophonist Hans Teuber, Deardorf explores deep and seldom-heard compositions by Kenny Barron, Keith Jarrett and Monk, while a second trio with Marc Seales & Gary Hobbs performs music by Jack DeJohnette and even the "Blind Faith" rock classic, "Can't Find My Way Home." "Perception" displays an inspired group aesthetic, as it provides a look into the creative vision that has made Deardorf a favorite musical partner to the countless jazz legends he's accompanied over the years.
Der erfahrene Seattle-Bassist Chuck Deardorf bringt langjährige musikalische Freunde und Landsleute für dieses Album zusammen: spontane Interaktion, düstere Grooves und melodische Schönheit. Mit dem Quartett (Pianistin Dawn Clement, Schlagzeuger Matt Wilson und Saxophonist Hans Teuber) erkundet Deardorf tiefgründige und ungewöhnliche Kompositionen von Kenny Barron, Keith Jarrett und Monk, während ein zweites Trio mit Marc Seales & Gary Hobbs Musik von Jack DeJohnette und sogar den Rockklassiker "Can't Find My Way Home" spielt. "Perception" zeigt eine inspirierte Gruppenästhetik, denn es gibt einen Einblick in die kreative Vision, die Deardorf zu einem beliebten musikalischen Partner der unzähligen Jazzlegenden gemacht hat, die er über die Jahre begleitet hat.

Matt Wilson (drums)

Hans Teuber (saxophone)

Hans Teuber has been a mainstay on the Northwest jazz scene for over 25 years, working with Wayne Horvitz, Jeff Johnson, Clay Giberson, and others who lean toward progressive jazz. On his first album as a soloist, Teuber relied on his compositions as the framework for his work on alto and tenor saxophone, flute, and clarinet. His orchestrations are engaging pieces of work without becoming raucous or loud. They naturally tend to frame his considerable fluency and facility with the horns, especially the alto which he seems to favor, such as on 'More Illusions' where his alto lays down the playing line while members of the rhythm section dart around like bees buzzing around a nest. In contrast, still on...

Hans Teuber has been a mainstay on the Northwest jazz scene for over 25 years, working with Wayne Horvitz, Jeff Johnson, Clay Giberson, and others who lean toward progressive jazz. On his first album as a soloist, Teuber relied on his compositions as the framework for his work on alto and tenor saxophone, flute, and clarinet. His orchestrations are engaging pieces of work without becoming raucous or loud. They naturally tend to frame his considerable fluency and facility with the horns, especially the alto which he seems to favor, such as on "More Illusions" where his alto lays down the playing line while members of the rhythm section dart around like bees buzzing around a nest. In contrast, still on alto, "C Minor Waltz uses more abstract figures. "B.C." opens with Teuber's feathery flute giving impressions of a sylvan setting before seguing in somewhat of a controlled, creative free for all with one instrument playing against another. "Bom Pra Caramba" is the result of modern creative jazz ideas applied to a Latin beat. The tenor comes into play on "Old Fellow," giving the music a dreamy aura as Santi Debriano shows imagination on a lengthy bass solo. While the music on this CD is quite pretty, one wishes there were a bit more diversity. After a while, a certain sameness creeps in, which is always a risk when the musical agenda is prepared by the same person. One or two classics or jazz standards would have elevated this CD to a more interesting level. — Dave Nathan
