Craig Taborn's third ECM album, 2017's Daylight Ghosts, is a sophisticated quartet date that finds the pianist deftly balancing his exploratory, jazz with subtle electronics, avant-garde flourishes, and a robust group aesthetic.

Album · 2017 · 9 Songs. For his third ECM outing as a leader, pianist Craig Taborn expands to quartet with the wily, cool-toned tenor sax and clarinet of Chris Speed, the solid and flexible bass of Chris Lightcap, and the anarchic but dynamically sensitive drumming of Dave King. The pieces are original, save for Roscoe Mitchell’s loosely phrased and lyrical Jamaican Farewell. The music is harmonically abstract yet enveloping and beautiful, often anchored to an irresistible rhythmic drive, particularly on New Glory and Ancient. Subtle electronic textures arise as well. Daylight Ghosts Craig Taborn.

Keyboardist Craig Taborns Daylight Ghosts is the Minneapolis-bred New Yorkers third ECM release as a leader, a quartet album following the solo Avenging Angel and trio disc Chants. Both projects earned wide acclaim, with The Guardian saying that Taborns musicality and his attention to detail are hypnotic, as is his remarkable sense of compositional narrative within an improvised performance.

Jazz piano shredder Craig Taborn is a compositional force on his new quartet album. From the LP’s grand design to its smallest quirks, Taborn and his bandmates make the music gently rage. If invitations to jam can give any hint of a musician’s reputation, then Craig Taborn has to be one of the most admired jazz pianists in the world. He’s released a handful of albums under his own name, beginning with a hard-to-find 1994 debut on the DIW label. But Taborn has been featured in a sideman role on a stunning array of sessions. Of late, he has delivered vigorous free-improv work alongside Art Ensemble of Chicago co-founder Roscoe Mitchell. And he has also played some of John Zorn’s most lyrical pieces in a trio that included the fiercely swinging bassist Christian McBride.
