Image: 1602244 Guitarist Joe Baer Magnant’s second release with his quartet doesn’t
aim to stake any claims in the world of jazz. Instead, Liminal Spaces
reflects the ever-changing living venue that resides inside a working
musician who has spent a majority of his life working through bar
bands, jazz clubs, and folk coffee houses. But rather than challenging
the rules of genre in protest, the Joe Baer Magnant Group happily
uses it all, melting together influences, the jazz, folk, blues, rock, and
even surrealism of Erik Satie in his swaggering arrangement of the
first of Satie’s “Trois Gnossiennes.” “Coagulate,” the opening track,
glides softly through some odd time signatures and key changes
without the need for fanfare: this is Magnant’s intention when telling
the story of packing up gear and heading to the next gig.
The quartet includes Chris Lujan on bass (leader of classic R&B/
Soul group, The M-Tet), Tony Capriccio on Fender Rhodes (leader
of fusion group, The Hexaphonics), and Michael Reed (drummer for
electronica/jazz groups Secret Sidewalk and The Edomites).
