While it may be tempting to simply call Dialectics a straight-ahead session, Kevin Sun's liner notes set the record straight: According to Sun, "neo-hard bop" is a more accurate term for this music. What's most important to note, however, is that the music is pretty irresistible, regardless of what you call it.
On the sophomore album from Curtis Nowosad, the drummer delivers an invigorating program of music with a killer quintet born out of the Winnipeg native's time spent studying at the University of Manitoba. This group got together regularly over a three year period starting in 2009, when saxophonist Jimmy Greene was still teaching at that institution. Nowosad is now a New Yorker and, as many know, Greene left The University of Manitoba to move to Connecticut, but this band didn't run out of steam because of those moves: Nowosad's group recently toured Canada sans Greene, and the whole band got together in Winnipeg in June of 2014 to record this album.
Nowosad, Greene, Gardner, Bonness, and bassist Steve Kirby have a good thing going here. These men have real musical chemistry, not the fabricated camaraderie that comes with so many jazz releases today. While it will likely be difficult for Nowosad to keep this group going, here's to hoping that he does.
