Mark Feldman — What Exit
(ECM 1928, 2006, CD)
by Henry Schneider, Published 2007-03-01Mark Feldman has been involved in the music industry for 30 years performing as a session musician in Nashville on over 200 country albums and then in New York City on more than 150 jazz albums. Today he is recognized as one of jazz’s finest violinists. What Exit is Mark’s first release on ECM and it spotlights his remarkable composing talents. Mark is joined on What Exit by England’s John Taylor on piano, the Swedish bassist Anders Jormin, and Californian drummer Tom Rainey. Together they perform an organic integration of classical music and modern jazz. The music is energetic, yet sparse. There are classical violin runs interspersed with jazz, quiet sweet melodies, and avant garde stylings. What Exit may not be for everyone, but if you are an adventuresome listener, you are sure to derive hours of enjoyment from this new release.
