Free Jazz: John Hébert’s Byzantine Monkey


In his four-star review of bassist/composer John Hébert‘s newly released debut, Byzantine Monkey (Firehouse 12 Records), on his popular blog, Free Jazz, Stef Gijssels writes, “Hébert is accompanied by some of today’s best modern jazz musicians…fully in dedication of the music he plays, as it should be, and with the exception of the last two tracks, he rarely brings his bass to the forefront. Unpredictability is the motto here (what do you expect from a byzantine monkey?). The highlight of the album is the second track, ‘Acrid Landscape’, a really beautiful composition that has it all…a strong debut.”
