Requiem for a New York Slice reviewed in the New York City JazzRecord!

The New York City JazzRecord

“Alongside Bisio are the volatile stylings of cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm and downbeat lyricism of cornet player Kirk Knuffke. They unite in an outpouring of feeling transmuted into peerless chamber-inflected music. Although collectively conceived, Bisio plays an anchoring role, imparting movement and mood through his choice of steady resonant pizzicato or keening bow work. “Sanctus” shows how such masters can invent form on the fly as it progresses through three distinct sections: at first serene and funereal with overlapping drones; then with lightening atmosphere as the strings braid and cornet whinnies joyfully; before a final more abstract conclusion with rattling percussive noises supplementing the bowing and fragmented cornet phrases.” … “This tribute is deeply moving.” John Sharpe NYCJR.
