Legendary jazz guitarist John Abercrombie’s trio is both a subtly swinging jazz group and an adventurous one. While consciously linked to the jazz tradition through John’s composition, he often seems to be on the brink of leaving it behind. Abercrombie has described himself both as “an Ornette Coleman styled free player” and a player keen to extend the harmonic language of the jazz guitar. As a forward-thinking traditionalist he’s been hailed as “the most important living jazz guitarist” (All About Jazz), and earned the respect and approval of his peers. Jim Hall, one of Abercrombie’s formative influences has said, “John is unique and allows himself to grow and change constantly…I love his playing because it constantly surprises me.” His contemporary John Scofield says, “Anybody who’s got ears can hear the beautiful integrity of his improvisations, and how incredibly well he plays the electric guitar. Right now he’s playing better than he ever has!” In the current issue of JAZZIZ Magazine, publisher Michael Fagien hails Abercrombie as “…one of the world’s most gifted guitarists” and Fagien has selected Abercrombie’s latest album as the best jazz album of the year.
