Brian Blade and his fellowship of virtuosos returns with the Brian Blade Fellowship Band’s fourth studio album to date, entitled Landmarks. It’s a pensive, dramatic collection of tasteful compositions – from spatial, spiritual ballads to furious out-bop concourses – with Blade’s dynamic  drum-work that will blast you into aural outer-space. Featuring an instrumentation rarely heard in this capacity, get ready for some Eric Dolphy-esque rips on the bass clarinet and soprano saxophone – courtesy of Myron Walden and Melvin Butler. If I’m not convincing enough, check it out yourself in stores or hear it extensively on Stirrin’ the Soup, Wednesdays 2-4pm. Until then, here’s the Brian Blade Fellowship laying it down at New York’s Village Vanguard last year. This guy sure loves to play.
