Joseph Shabason’s 2017 solo debut, Aytche, reveals a large and luscious world of new-jazz greenery. The in-demand composer (who’s worked most notably with Destroyer, The War On Drugs, DIANA and Andre Ethier) unfurls his transfigured sax tones into something much more ethereal, curious and evocative when working by his lonesome. Recalling trumpeter Jon Hassell’s early 80’s output, Shabason conjures up vivid inner landscapes, populated by reeds and tides, tweaked by an infatuated longing.
