The New Jazz Composers Octet is an all-acoustic jazz ensemble founded by trumpeter/arranger David Weiss in 1996. NPR's Josh Jackson described them as "part New York hustle and part writer's workshop, all of it redolent with the aroma of newness. The title track of The Turning Gate won the group a Chamber Music Association grant.

The ensemble performs a melodically beautiful and harmonically complex program of seven songs, all of which were written by members of the New Jazz Composers Octet. Beginning with "Deadweight," a modern, propulsive composition, the ensemble moves from a densely orchestrated opening theme into provocative solos by David Weiss, Myron Walden, and Nasheet Waits. Toward the end of the program, a rearranged Chick Corea gem titled "Inner Space" is given new life with an outstanding performance by Xavier Davis on piano and Jimmy Greene on tenor saxophone. The New Jazz Composers Octet.

They’re a young group, but the style of music has seen quite a bit in its time, and there’s a tale to be told. As reflected in the album, his solos throb with sentiment but don’t weep. They enjoy the solitude, meandering happily alone. In Weiss’s A Little Twist, Walden freely expresses his musicality devoid of any self-consciousness.

This is the octet’s second album. From New York, they’ve been together now for five years. Unlike popular music, their melodies aren’t the kind you sing to yourself in the shower. Each piece is an adventure. The composers and arrangers build each one gradually with sounds being placed together intentionally. Eight instrumental voices sound like sixteen. Acoustic timbres cause the program to retain a natural sound. As long as spirits can work successfully together like this in complete accord, jazz will continue to grow beyond the usual format.

Walkin' the Line has been added to your Cart. Used: Very Good Details. The album is nowhere to be found in any record store I've gone to in Los Angeles. In the live venues, the brothermens sound out like some kind of space cats, with their instruments meowing and whatnot.
