As the pandemic winds down and music re-emerges in 2022, Marc Copland has released his first quartet CD in several years, featuring some of the finest talents on the New York scene.

Copland feels that this is one of his best recordings ever, and after listening, we can see why!. By now Marc Copland needs no introduction. At 74 years, he’s arguably at the very top of his game, making him one of the handful of jazz pianists playing at the highest level. Certainly John Abercrombie and Gary Peacock thought so; for over 30 years, they played in his bands, and he in theirs. Drew Gress, the other veteran in the band, has been omnipresent on the jazz scene in the last three decades and likewise needs no introduction. He covers the whole instrument with breath-taking virtuosity, and his understanding of time and harmony is perhaps unrivaled among his peers.

Copland and Gress, partners for many years, are joined by two outstanding younger talents. Robin Verheyen is a Belgian-American saxophonist who has been playing with Copland for nearly ten years. Says the pianist, “he really knows how to listen, and has his own sound and approach, which is so important.” Copland, who has played and recorded over the years with(among others) Bob Berg, Mike Brecker, David Liebman, Joe Lovano, and James Moody, says simply, “Robin is my favorite tenor and soprano saxophonist.” But it’s not only the saxophonist’s talents as a player that shine here; Copland has included two ballads composed by Verheyen on this recording, because “his tunes are unusual but very logical, and fun to play on.” Drummer Mark Ferber, who splits time between New York and Los Angeles, is no stranger to jazz listeners, having toured and recorded with Gary Peacock’s trio, Ralph Alessi’s quintet (two albums for ECM), and countless other projects. He combines an effortless technical proficiency, killer swing, high intensity, and a quiet sensitivity--- all in one package.
