O’s Notes: Bassist Chris Lightcap assembles a fine band, Bigmouth with Craig Taborn (keyboards), Gerald Cleaver (drums) and two tenor saxophonists: Tony Malaby and Chris Cheek. Lightcap composed all but one selection, the final track “All My Tomorrows”. The groove is modern jazz that dances on the edge of free jazz space from time to time. These cats are just playing in their zone but they never escape the listener. That makes Epicenter a welcome return for fans of Bigmouth.
