||EYES IN THE BACK OF MY HEAD
|Cosmologic was founded as a collective quartet in 1999, and still consists of the original four musicians. The group initially incorporated interpretations of music by Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy, John Coltrane and others into their performances, but quickly moved towards playing only original compositions. Central to the group's sound is a commitment to developing challenging and original compositions. With nearly a decade of experience together, Cosmologic continues to extend their repertoire of original music, in an ongoing search for new ideas. The result is a band that pushes the envelope while remaining accessible.
This is the fourth album - but the first with wide distribution - by this amazingly assured and swinging free-bop quartet, who have been developing their unique take on modern jazz for a decade and will strongly appeal to fans of: Anthony Braxtons 70s/80s quartets, John Carter-Bobby Bradford, Ornette Coleman, Steve Lacy-Roswell Rudd Quartet, Vandermark 5.
