Larry Grenadier 'The Gleaners' LP
Over the decades, ECM has released a line of inventive albums showcasing solo double bass by such virtuosos of the instrument as Dave Holland, Barre Phillips and Miroslav Vitous. Now the label presents The Gleaners, the first album of solo bass by Larry Grenadier, one of the most admired, accomplished bassists working in jazz today.
It is a profound and highly creative album, harvesting influences from many
sources, its title inspired by Agnes Varda’s film ‘The Gleaners and I’. In between
his own pieces here, including a dedication to early hero Oscar Pettiford,
Grenadier explores compositions by George Gershwin, John Coltrane, Paul
Motian, Rebecca Martin and Wolfgang Muthspiel.
