O’s Notes: Tenor saxophonist Rich Halley assembles a quartet with Michael Bisio (b), Matthew Shipp (p) and Newman Taylor Baker (d) for his latest release“Terra Incognita. As you may have guessed by the lineup, this is a free jazz set, 6 well-developed platforms for Halley’s improvisation. Bisio has a cool bass solo on ‘Forager‘ while Halley puts his best into ‘Centripetal‘.
