About the album

Veteran Seattle bassist Chuck Deardorf brings together longtime musical friends and compatriots for this album, filled with spontaneous interaction, gritty grooves and melodic beauty. With the quartet of pianist Dawn Clement, drummer Matt Wilson and saxophonist Hans Teuber, Deardorf explores deep and seldom-heard compositions by Kenny Barron, Keith Jarrett and Monk, while a second trio with Marc Seales & Gary Hobbs performs music by Jack DeJohnette and even the "Blind Faith" rock classic, "Can't Find My Way Home." "Perception" displays an inspired group aesthetic, as it provides a look into the creative vision that has made Deardorf a favorite musical partner to the countless jazz legends he's accompanied over the years.
Der erfahrene Seattle-Bassist Chuck Deardorf bringt langjährige musikalische Freunde und Landsleute für dieses Album zusammen: spontane Interaktion, düstere Grooves und melodische Schönheit. Mit dem Quartett (Pianistin Dawn Clement, Schlagzeuger Matt Wilson und Saxophonist Hans Teuber) erkundet Deardorf tiefgründige und ungewöhnliche Kompositionen von Kenny Barron, Keith Jarrett und Monk, während ein zweites Trio mit Marc Seales & Gary Hobbs Musik von Jack DeJohnette und sogar den Rockklassiker "Can't Find My Way Home" spielt. "Perception" zeigt eine inspirierte Gruppenästhetik, denn es gibt einen Einblick in die kreative Vision, die Deardorf zu einem beliebten musikalischen Partner der unzähligen Jazzlegenden gemacht hat, die er über die Jahre begleitet hat.
