The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present the Rob Clearfield Quartet performing Ben Monder’s "Excavation" released in 2000.
“Guitarist Ben Monder packs this highly original album with a panoply of ideas. The dreamlike voice of Theo Bleckmann gives the music an almost medieval, spooky quality. The compositions couldn't be more modern, however. "Ellenville" and "Hatchet Face" are the album's epic statements, combining serious grooves with technically staggering ensemble passages, wordless vocalizing, and brilliant guitar playing. "Mistral" and "Windowpane" are built around dense, repeated arpeggio figures that spiral into patterns within patterns, creating a dizzying harmonic whirlpool. Finally, "You Are My Sunshine" finds Monder on solo acoustic guitar, putting the famous children's song through its paces.Excavation contains some of the most unique, invigorating music released during the year 2000.” ~David R.
