About the album

On their second (1995) CD for Songlines, this young, Brooklyn-based jazz/new music trio harnessed the brimming energy that marked their self-titled debut and crafted a finely detailed group of compositions which they treat with typically eclectic intensity. Shimmering lyricism melds with improvcore, twisted bop lines don klezmer rhythms or M-base backbeats as BABKAS contributed to the cultural cross-fertilization that made jazz the newest world music. Writing in CMJ, David Newgarden refers to their “impeccable swing and vitality” and concludes that “BABKAS are expanding the jazz canon rather than simply regurgitating it.”
