“There’s a kind of throwback vibe to this quartet led by composer and drummer Harris Eisenstadt. It’s a gruff, visceral sound that harks back to the late ’70s/early ’80s free-jazz scene, with strong melodies that give way to wide-open playing.”—Down Beat Toronto-born, Brooklyn-based Harris Eisenstadt is among the most creative and prolific musicians of his generation. His eclectic resume includes working with luminaries such as Nels Cline, Bennie Maupin, Marty Ehrlich, (among others) while leading several bands like Canada Day and Golden State. He put together the Old Growth Forest group in 2015— essentially, an intriguing resurrection of his trio with trombonist Jeb Bishop and bassist Jason Roebke, adding tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby—for an engagement at The Stone in New York and shortly afterwards a self-titled recording was cut for Clean Feed. In a review of the disc on freejazzblog.org: “This album has parts that swing, parts that groove, parts that confound, and parts that astound…an excellent demonstration of jazz-as-play.”
