Eric Revis

Whether frontier his own ensembles with colleagues like Orrin Evans, Nasheet Waits, Kris Davis, Andrew Cyrille, Darius Jones and Jason Moran, double bassist Eric Revis has established himself as much for his experimentations into the unknown as with mainstreamjazz forms (Branford Marsalis Quartet, Betty Carter). On his newest album as a leader, "Sing Me Some Cry" (Clean Feed), he goes a long way beyond anything he's achieved before. “Sing" is the next step beyond 2013's "Parallax” (Clean Feed), his first recorded pairing withmulti-reedist and MacArthur Fellow Ken Vandermark, the Chicago experimental scion. It shows Revis' astoundingly flexible range with a huge grounded sound.
