John Abercrombie’s newest album on ECM was released this past April 3, 2007 (The Third Quartet). This is the third album from his current band with Mark Feldman, Marc Johnson and Joey Baron (hence the tittle). The quartet has been playing together for the last seven years. The album contains 10 tunes, 8 of which are Abercrombie originals, plus Bill Evans’s “Epilogue” and Ornette Coleman’s “Round Trip.” This is Abercrombie’s 25th recording as a leader for ECM. According to his website, the quartet will be touring Europe in March 2007 and follow with an East Coast Tour in April.
