Presence (See Tao Recordings), the second album released by the John Yao Quintet, is no less a mastery of these dichotomies than were Yao’s previous albums, In the Now (Innova, 2012), the Quintet’s first release, and Flip-Flop (See Tao Recordings, 2015), the big band debut from John Yao and His 17-piece Instrument. One Jazzman; two distinct callings. Featuring eight original compositions, Presence showcases Yao’s growth and strength as a performer and composer. The album is a journey through various musical styles, ranging from hard-hitting, funk tunes to lyrical, passionate ballads; and from straight-ahead, swinging post-bop to experimental, free jazz. However, the division of musical styles and moods has a singular purpose: These songs were written following the sudden passing of Yao’s closest friend and were a means of coping with this loss.

Those multiple dimensions of meaning in the word presence have all folded upon one another in trombonist John Yao's third album to date. There are wistful passages that offer up reflective thoughts for those on both sides of the performer-listener divide, dynamic expressions of strength and motion powered by emotional undertows both light and dark in nature, and full-on embraces of what is, what was, and.
Hard-hitting, aggressive, and experimental jazz contrasted by ballads that exude passion and tenderness, complexity and understanding. Genre: Jazz: Modern Creative Jazz. We'll ship when it's back in stock.
