There is a tendency to see jazz performance divided between uptempo numbers and ballads, but Michael Adkins is perhaps concerned with something different- a thoughtful, alert, observant gait- Henry David Thoreau preferred to talk about ‘sauntering’- that offers the player a new relationship with his surroundings. Adkins’ immediate surroundings are familiar enough, the group he unveiled on a previous release is again featured here. Only the bassist is a newcomer. Nothing new here, one might think, except that Adkins does propose a new relationship between the constituent elements. Much has been made of his saxophone sound, which does as Stuart Broomer perceptively noted in the liner notes of Adkins’ previous CD sound like a confident appropriation of many decades of saxophone language and jazz styles. Here, though, one is perhaps less immediately struck by the timbre and phrasing of the lead instrument than how it moves through the space defined by the group. The themes in this release invite the listener to join the company, take a stroll, “let him be drawn by the attractions of the terrain” and the encounters he might find there. We walk. We listen. We’ll hear.
