No matter whose definition you use, jazz is essentially a music of innovation and personal expression. The best recordings of jazz – and of music that bears a degree of jazz influence – carry a sense of history, a vision forward, and some essence of the individual performers. Bassist/composer David Tranchina’s newest collection of songs, The Ogre, reflects that ideal confluence of tradition, creativity, and vibrant personality. An educator, session musician, and veteran of the Southern California music scene, Tranchina’s compositions are evocative and memorable, filled to the brim with textures, emotion, and surprise. As echoes of Frank Zappa and Duke Ellington, Julius Hemphill and Charles Mingus rise and fall, the band keeps one collective foot in big-band tradition and the other stretched across an unseen boundary. Meters blur, audio snow falls, and the limits of breath and range are tested. Twelve visionary instrumentalists listen intently and respond to one another with clarity and unity as they cycle through phases of post-bop, funk, and balladric beauty.
