Michael Vlatkovich Septet  -   Ask 7 - neurosis01 - Puzzle
Artist: Michael Vlatkovich Septet 
Album: Ask 7
Genre: Free Jazz
Label:
pfMENTUM
Recording Date: 2014


Trombonist Michael Vlatkovich brings together a forward looking team of Ron Miles/ct, Wade Sander/bstb, Mark Harris/as-cl-bcl, Glenn Nitta/ts, Kent McLagen/b and Chris Lee/dr for a collection of originals. There’s a free form New Orleanish jam with growling trombone and dancing clarinet on “ Chari Red Blue Medley that goes on for 16 minutes, and the lonely “Madam Why” sprawls on for 10 minutes with some lovely work by Miles and McLagen. The bluesy bopper “Ethe Eventual supremacy of Reasy” features Harris’ pungent alto while the repetitive “Innumerable Mementos…” drones on with the same theme for a couple choruses two many. A bit of rhythm livens up “Missing C…” and the grooving “1 ? Southeast…” so there’s a bit of variety here between the languid vibes. - George W. Harris ? June 11, 2015 ? Jazz Weekly

Some jazz artists you can count on to make quality music year-after-year. They may not always win popularity contests, yet their music lives and breathes well. Trombonist jazz-composer Michael Vlatkovich is one of those. With his own bands/projects and now as a member of the Rich Halley group he comes through consistently. Being a West Coaster he may not have as large a presence on the scene than if he was in New York, for example, but that has nothing to do with the music.
So today another fine one, the Michael Vlatkovich Septet's Ask 7 (pfMentum CD089). It is Michael, his trombone and compositions along with a multi-wind outfit of Ron Miles on cornet, Wade Sander on bass trombone, Mark Harris on alto sax/clarinet/bass clarinet, Glenn Nitta on tenor sax, Kent McLagen on acoustic bass and Chris Lee on drums.
It is a game outfit that handles the composed ensemble music well and has a deep pocket of good improvisers to get the music moving. These are some of Vlatkovich's most compelling compositions, modern and on the outside edge but also somehow timeless in a classic sort of way.
Combine the music with some very nice voicings and performances, good solos and a loosely swinging rhythm team and you have some excellent music. That is what you get. Vlatkovich's trombone is in good evidence and as always has high artistry. The other wind players get some good things going solo-wise. Harris and Nitta get my ear especially.
Hearing this I felt strongly that Vlatkovich would write some excellent big band charts but no matter because we get a very full-sounding septet that allows for some very ambitious and successful Vlatkovich music here.
It's one of his very best and so I heartily recommend you hear it. Encore! - gapplegatemusicreview.blogspot.co.uk
