Additional Information

Small Places, the new album by Michael Formanek, is the bassist/composer’s follow–up to The Rub and Spare Change, his widely lauded ECM debut as a leader. That 2010 release garnered a rare five–star review in DownBeat magazine, while The New York Times described the disc as being “graceful in its subversions, often even sumptuous.” This exclusive Jazz Standard engagement spotlights the music of Small Places with Formanek at the helm of the recording band, including altoist Tim Berne, pianist Craig Taborn, and drummer Gerald Cleaver. Earthy yet atmospheric, this is very 21st century American jazz, the music brimming with piquant riffs and muscular ostinatos, rich in melodic possibility and the sound of surprise.

Tim Berne – alto saxophone

Craig Taborn – piano
