ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Founded in 2001 by bass player and bandleader Kenny Cordova, the Agent-K Quartet’s 2009 debut album Mouvements is as much a tribute to the giants of free-jazz and avant-garde jazz as it is the embodiment of cultivated elegance and uninhibited exploration within the jazz idiom. The band’s strengths - intuitive communication, affinity for improvisation and formidable musicianship – shine through on each song. The Quartet does an impressive job of negotiating the improvised composition structure typical of free-jazz form with the predetermined structures common in avant-garde jazz to create vivid surrealistic sonic images ripe with intensity and emotion. These songs are brought to life through each musician’s unique voice. Each instrument remains in fluent conversation with the other, occasionally punctuating with percussive bursts and melodic eruptions. A confluence of sounds - bass, trumpet, electric piano and drums - come together in perfect harmony.

Furious
One of the most energetic albums I have heard. Very passionate and accurate to the traditions of the avant-garde jazz. Its hard to believe this was recorded in the 21st century. Absolutely amazing!!!!

A great example of abstract storytelling
This music is not for everyone, but if you are into abstract art this band is an excellent contemporary proponent of the form. Despite playing a style which rejects conventional song structure, these guys are masterful at expressing feelings through their collective ability to improvise the construction of supensful harmonies and resolutions through atonal collapsing deconstructions. This ongoing process keeps the listener ENGAGED throughout the performances. I recommend the cut "Agent-K" as a good sampler.
