Best of 2017 #48: Misha Mullov-Abbado – “Cross-Platform Interchange” (Edition Records)


There’s a whirlwind expanse of ground covered on the sophomore release from Misha Mullov-Abbado.  Whether diving into Ellingtonian territory with a bop-infused orchestration or spiking a flag into the soil of his own little section of the modern post-bop landscape, the bassist displays a remarkable ability at making it all sound like one coherent vision.  Bits of space-y drone, indie-rock edge, contemporary groove and curiously expressive chamber music comprise just some of the ingredients that make Cross-Platform Interchange a wild success.

Music from London, UK.
