ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bassist Lindsey Horner is one of the more versatile musicians in jazz and modern music. He has most often been heard with musicians on the cutting edge, recording and performing with artists such as Greg Osby, Bill Frisell, Bobby Previte, Dave Douglas and Muhal Richard Abrams.

As a leader he has produced four recordings, NEVER NO MORE, MERCY ANGEL, BELIEVERS and the recently released DON'T COUNT ON GLORY.

Through the ‘90’s he performed as a member of the Myra Melford trio, an association which yielded four highly acclaimed discs.

He is a member of the co-operative group JEWELS AND BINOCULARS/MICHAEL MOORE, LINDSEY HORNER, MICHAEL VATCHER PLAY MUSIC OF BOB DYLAN.

His European connections include playing with guitarist Philip Catherine, trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, saxophonist Matthias Schubert and the great Belgian tenor player, Erwin Vann.

He also has deep roots in Irish music having toured and recorded extensively with singer/songwriter Susan McKeown, Scottish fiddle master Johnny Cunningham and traditional Irish music legend Andy Irvine.


DON'T COUNT ON GLORY

On this recording, Lindsey Horner is joined by long time associates pianist Neal Kirkwood, guitarist Pete McCann and reed player Marty Ehrlich. He realized a long standing dream by having brilliant trumpeter Brian Lynch on the session. Allison Miller is the drummer for most of the record with Bobby Previte and Lieven Venken making guest appearances on drums as does Uri Caine on electric piano. Jeff Berman plays percussion throughout. The album was recorded in New York with one track, Gyp the Blood, recorded in Pittsburgh with some of the finest musicians of that city with whom Lindsey worked during a two year stay there.

All of the compositions are original with the exception of Green Chimneys by Thelonious Monk.

LINDSEY HORNER-DON'T COUNT ON GLORY

Since the early 1990's, Lindsey Horner has brought his sturdy bass playing to an array of adventurous jazz settings...

Mr. Horner has an untroubled sensibility as a composer; his songs offer simple rewards and make few harsh demands. This is good fodder for his excellent cast of interpreters, including Marty Ehrlich, the trumpeter Brian Lynch and the guitarist Pete McCann. Assorted guests, like Bobby Previte and the keyboardist Uri Caine, slip in and out of rotation, bringing fresh energies with them...

Straightforward lyricism is hardly foreign to Mr. Horner, who has also worked extensively with the Irish folksinger Susan McKeown. He plays tin whistle on the title track, and Celtic low whistle on a sweetly balladic "Shadow Girl." To his credit, it sounds courtly rather than cloying, and not the slightest bit out of place.

NATE CHINEN
— THE NEW YORK TIMES

"...This CD is terrific, great compositions, great playing, great teamwork...coaxes influences from Tijuana and English madrigals into a timeless celebration that doesn't need geography."

-Greg Masters,
— AllAboutJazz, NY

"Horner showcases an organically eclectic way with writing and conceptualizing his music all the while dodging easy categorization.

-Josef Woodard
— Jazz Times

"Horner's riveting writing draws on several elements, including a respect for melody and arrangements that let the musicians open up and create interesting textures, developing into landscapes that often profile unusual structures."

Jerry D'Souza

"For my money, it’s one of the top five or ten modern jazz releases of 2005. With this outing, Horner and his acoustic-electric large ensemble combine modernism with mainstream jazz values. And Horner shines as a gifted composer/arranger to coincide with his firm bottom-end and limberly enacted walking bass lines...

Part of the overall delight resides within the radiance and breadth of execution generated by the soloists, coupled with themes shaded by world-beat percussion grooves and peppery horn charts...

Take asymmetrical doses of guts, focus and momentum, and there lies some of the recipes for artistic success during this buoyant and thoroughly hip engagement."
