4 AV 5 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I NORRKÖPINGS TIDNINGAR

"Med trioformatet öppnar sig förbluffande många möjligheter. På denna skiva hörs saxofonisten Mark Turner, basisten Larry Grenadier och trummisen Jeff Ballard. Utan ackordinstrument så stängs vissa möjligheter, en begränsning som kan frigöra kreativitet. På denna skiva har musikerna tagit fasta på det och tar fram linjerna i musiken på ett förtjänstfullt sätt. Ibland blir det ett polyfont spel med fina stämmor, där även trummorna medverkar. På andra spår är det mer av ett motspel, där instrumenten samspelar i mer traditionellt komp och solopartier. Ofta spelar de som en kropp, där de svarar på varandras infall. Så blir det en associationsrik väv i en musik som ständigt engagerar. Herrar Turner, Grenadier och Ballard fångar något av det finaste i jazzen. En känsla av frihet som inte finns i någon annan musik."
(Lira)

"ECM-albumet Fly - Sky & Country presenterar saxofonisten Mark Turner tillsammans med basisten Larry Grenadier och trumslagaren Jeff Ballard. Med fint stöd av sina kompmusiker bjuder Turner på avspänt spel på sina saxofoner, tenor- och sopran, i Charles Lloyds anda. Musiken är mycket ljus och luftig. Materialet som spelas är hemkört av trions medlemmar."
(Sundsvalls Tidning)

FLY:
Mark Turner, tenor and soprano saxophones
Larry Grenadier, double-bass
Jeff Ballard, drums

- ECM debut for Fly, the adventurous collective comprised of three influential American jazz musicians.

- The group was called into existence by drummer Jeff Ballard in the mid-1990s, but draws on a longer history of shared projects.

- All three players write music for the group. Mark Turner: "Sometimes it's the saxophone carrying the melody. Other times it's the bass or drums. We spread out the frontline duties among us."

- Mark Turner's uniquely-poised saxophone has drawn praise both from critics and from his peers. - Turner and Larry Grenadier have recently received much positive press for their contribution to Enrico Rava's "New York Days".

- Grenadier and Jeff Ballard are also well-known as two-thirds of the Brad Mehldau Trio, and half of the Metheny/Mehldau Quartet.

Background
"Sky & Country", the first ECM album by the Fly trio is the group's second recording. It follows the widely-applauded, eponymously-titled debut album "Fly" issued by Savoy in 2004. "Sky & Country" was recorded in New York's Avatar Studio in February and June 2008. It extends the trio's essential blueprint: Group jazz stripped of ego, honouring the compositions. Sax and bass moving in complementary orbits, drums actively detailing rhythm and groove... Mark Turner was born in Fairborn, Ohio in 1965. Moved with his family to California when he was four. Turner started playing clarinet at nine then later switched to alto, then tenor as a teenager. He studied art at Long Beach State and California College of Arts and Crafts, transferring to Berklee College of Music, and graduating in 1990. Since moving to New York he has worked and recorded with musicians such as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Dave Holland, Paul Motian, Brad Mehldau, John Pattitucci, Dave Douglas, Billy Hart, Lee Konitz and James Moody. He is on dozens of recordings as a sideman as well as five of his own recordings ("Yam Yam" on Criss Cross, "Mark Turner", "In This World", "Ballad Session" and "Dharma Days" on Warner Brothers). Larry Grenadier was born in San Francisco in 1966. He began playing bass when he was 11, and as teenager worked in the Bay area with Joe Henderson, Stan Getz, Bobby Hutcherson among many others. He graduated from Stanford University in 1989 with a degree in English Literature. After playing with Gary Burton's band in 1990, he moved to New York City where he played in the bands of Betty Carter, Joshua Redman, Danilo Perez, Tom Harrell, Joe Henderson, John Scofield, Pat Metheny, Paul Motian, Charles Lloyd and Brad Mehldau and recorded dozens of albums. Previous ECM credits include three albums with Charles Lloyd: "The Water Is Wide", "Hyperion With Higgins" and "Lift Every Voice". Drummer/percussionist Jeff Ballard was born in Southern California in 1963 and grew up in Santa Cruz, where he began playing drums at age 14. He toured with Ray Charles from 1988 through 1990. Jeff moved to New York in 1990, and since then has played and/or recorded with Lou Donaldson, Chick Corea, Buddy Montgomery, Mike Stern, DaniloPerez, Pat Metheny, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Joshua Redman and very many others. Recent recordings include the Brad Mehldau Trio's "Live", "Metheny/ Mehldau" and Joshua Redman's "Momentum". "Sky & Country" is Ballard's first ECM recording.
