Reprise is the second recording by this quintet led by Dutchman Ben van Gelder, and their first on the German label Pirouet.
The primary voice is van Gelder’s airy, lyrical alto saxophone, but it is his compositions and the overall sound that capture the attention. The unison lines of the leader’s sax and the vibraphone of Peter Schlamb allow space for Sam Harris’ piano and sparingly-used synthesizer. Rick Rosato occupies the bass chair, and the impressive Craig Weinrib is on drums. All five are still under thirty.
Van Gelder is the composer of all but one of the tunes (R.E.L. is by Peter Schlamb). The music lacks the ferocious (and sometimes irritating) urgency of much contemporary jazz, but there is no shortage of energy. The entire CD benefits from a subtly determined sense of purpose, harnessed power, and clarity of reproduction. Crystalline and Without Haste are particularly well named. Only Yarnin’ (a duet for alto sax and drums) comes across as if it could have been freely improvised.
