a far-reaching and intensely beautiful work of percussion-led artistry that daringly blurs the boundaries between composition and improvisation.
‘Verisimilitude’ continues drummer/composer Tyshawn Sorey’s effort to shatter the jazz piano trio tradition by extending the form to encompass the influence of the likes of Feldman, Debussy and Xenakis. One of the most in-demand drummers in improvised music - he has collaborated extensively with the likes of John Zorn, Vijay Iyer, Steve Lehman, Claire Chase, George Lewis, and Roscoe Mitchell, among myriad others - Sorey is also in the vanguard of artists working in that liminal space between spontaneous composition and notated music. this record utilises a wide array of percussion, along with judicious use of electronics to explore a wider textural soundscape.
