Mindi Abair, Jason “Slim” Gambill & More: New Music Monday

Acclaimed bassist/composer Chris Lightcap unites Bigmouth and Superette, his two ensembles, on his latest studio recording SuperBigmouth. We’re delighted to present you with a song premiere for one of the tracks from the LP, “Zero Point Five,” ahead of its October 4 release via Pyroclastic Records. “On ‘Zero Point Five’ with both the writing and the improvising, the emphasis is on a collective approach, and the saxophones and guitars take turns playing improvised duos over the two main sections,” explains Lightcap. “Midway, Craig switches from vox organ to piano, playing a phrase that eventually becomes the last sound you hear as the rest of us gradually drop out. The contrapuntal writing on this one reminded me of some Baroque pop music I’ve heard coming out of the ’60s so it seemed appropriate to mix it with a church-like, ‘wall of sound’ quality.”
