Aram Shelton
Arrive (Document Chicago #9)
Street Date: September 20, 2005
482 Music 482-1035

Aram Shelton, alto saxophone; Jason Adasiewicz, vibraphone; Jason Roebke, bass; Tim Daisy, drums

"Reedist Aram Shelton plays with a thoughtfulness and structural rigor that's rare in a twentysomething jazz musician, but he also brings a deeply improvisational mind-set to each of his projects...The quartet Arrive isn't as well-known as [his other groups Dragons 1976 and Grey Ghost]-that should change when 482 Music releases its debut this fall-but it's as good as anything Shelton's had a hand in. Its tightly arranged, emotionally muted originals have a lovely chamber-jazz feel, with musicians combining to repeat unison phrases and carve out spaces for solos; the pieces are elaborate yet never sound fussed over."-Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader

Harris Eisenstadt
The Soul and Gone (Document Chicago #10)
Street Date: October 11, 2005
482 Music 482-1042

Harris Eisenstadt, drum set/percussion and composer; Jason Mears, alto saxophone and B-flat clarinet; Jeb Bishop, trombone; Jeff Parker, electric guitar; Jason Adasiewicz, vibraphone; Jason Roebke, contrabass

Prolific young drummer/percussionist/composer Harris Eisenstadt has collaborated with a long list of notable composer/improvisers all over the world in a wide variety of formats and musical genres (including contemporary classical, jazz/improvised music, West African/Javanese dance, theater, and film scores) and on more than 25 recordings on 17 different labels. As LA Weekly's Greg Burk put it, "Harris Eisenstadt is a composer with limbs prodding into spontaneous, post-bop, and neoclassical. He works with the best." His fifth CD as a leader, The Soul and Gone, captures his young all-star sextet of the same name live at Chicago's famed 3030.
