    Listening to this through loaner ZMF Atrium and Lyr + both of which arrived yesterday as I work this morning. Loving the sound of Allen's sax on this recording particularly through the Atrium renders (colors?) the "blat" and "reediness" very well compared to the Utopia...though the Utopia is the more "accurate" of the two I think.

    I was also listening through Atrium (koa LTD, universe lamb perf pads) < Af (no feedback) < Holo May < HQPlayer DSD256 recipe. I don't know how to judge accuracy, but instrument character and performer handling of instrument were rendered very convincingly.

    I recommend his album "Tide" and his work on Billy Drummond's recent "Valse Sinistre" where he reimagines Carla Bley's originals.

    "Valse Sinistre" is one of my recent faves, I've listened to it more than its fair share since I got it. One incidental reason is that Carla Bley's "Valse Sinistre" composition is derived from one of her earlier songs in the oddball jazz opera "Escalator Over the Hill" that was one of my intros to cutting-edge jazz fusion in the early 70s (dating myself). Micah does a superb job refiguring that composition, the initial bars where he plays solo are rightly unsettling.

    you're absolutely right! "rightly unsettling"... perfectly put.

    micah's got a couple new albums coming out soon — one with his trio (his own compositions), and a solo (standards), both quite wonderful.

    This is shiver-inducing in intensity and tightness. The audience at this live session must have been afraid to breathe lest the spell would break. So original, nothing repetitive or derivative. On Bandcamp.

    I saw this trio recently. First time seeing Lage live. Lage gave one of the most virtuosic and musical performances I've seen.

    This album is fun.

    Have loved MJQ since my earliest jazz days listening to my parents’ old scratchy vinyl, but TIL that not only did John Lewis sort of discover/sponsor Ornette Coleman at the Lenox sessions, but he made a big splash by recording their own version of Coleman’s Lonely Woman and titling one of their best albums after the composition.
