EDITORS’ NOTES

Joined by highly sought-after players in improvised music, bassist Eric Revis surveys stark emotional terrain in this dynamic and richly varied quartet set. The chops and forceful tone he’s employed for many years in the Branford Marsalis Quartet serve him well as a leader, even as he veers further into avant-garde abstraction. Ken Vandermark’s husky tenor sax and plaintive clarinet, Kris Davis’ shape-shifting piano, and Chad Taylor’s wizardly drumming make Sing Me Some Cry a captivating listen.
