David Rogers Sextet
"The World Is Not Your Home"
(JMB 0005)

Who says jazz isn’t world music? These six tracks by composer/saxophonist David Rogers show that American jazz continues to grow by embracing the world.

Hard driving jazz runs throughout this album, laced with Cuban montuno rhythms here, a Medieval cantus firmus chorale there, an African folk song, the chatter of talking drums, and the guest appearance of an African xylophone.

At the heart of every piece is David Rogers’s expressive saxophone and the propulsive jazz rhythm section of Gerald Cleaver (drum set), Craig Taborn (piano), and Marion Hayden (acoustic bass). Mark Stone (melodic percussion) and Derek Bermel (clarinet) expand the colors and stylistic range to create a truly global vision of modern jazz.
