Mise en Abîme – Steve Lehman

 

On his latest Pi Recordings album, Mise en Abîme, Steve Lehman continues to build on the work he has established with spectral harmony expanding the harmonic palette by incorporating live electronics and a custom-built vibraphone. He contrasts at the same time by reinforcing his connection to jazz tradition with three radically re-imagined Bud Powell compositions.

The result is an album that fortifies Lehman’s role as a visionary composer who establishes an innovative trend that expands the future of harmony, rhythm, as they are coupled with compositional form, and electro-acoustic improvisation in a jazz setting.
