ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of the most sought-after bassists and “musician’s musician” on the New York scene, what sets bassist Gregg August apart is his musical language which spans the jazz, Latin, classical and avant-garde worlds. Four By Six is the bassist’s third album as a leader which magnificently sews together his working bands while documenting a moment in time of the meticulously cultivated sound which is brilliantly captured on this recording. The album’s collection of all original compositions and “some of New York’s most free-thinking players,” features a quartet with Sam Newsome (soprano); Luis Perdomo (piano) and E.J. Strickland (drums) and a sextet with John Bailey (trumpet); Yosvany Terry (alto); JD Allen (tenor); Luis Perdomo (piano) and Rudy Royston (drums). It was truly time to record these groups, which together funnel each one of August’s influences, life and legends into one astonishingly beautiful album, showing his versatility as a player, composer and citizen of the world. With liner notes by Stanley Crouch.
