O’s Notes: One of the more promising young trombonists, composer Jacob Garchik assembles a quintet with Sam Newsome (s-sax), Jacob Sacks (p), Thomas Morgan (b) and Dan Weiss (d). It is a highly improvised jazz and blues set with no heads, a true jam session. After the opening, free-jazz “Collage” they move towards straight-ahead jazz with punctuated tunes like “Fanfare”. We enjoyed the edginess on “Idee Fixe” and the abrupt changes on “Fantasia” and “Impromptu”. Assembly is a unique and appreciable recording.
