Marty Ehrlich writes in the album liner notes that his compulsion was to give expression to the place where beauties that should not be forgotten and beauties that have yet to be imagined collide, coexist and transform. The Long View accomplishes that goal in spades. Track Listing: 1. The Long View: Movement I 12:07 2. The Long View: Movement II 12:12 3. The Long View: Movement III 8:49 4. The Long View: Movement IV 8:52 5. The Long View: Movement V 8:29 6. The Long View: Movement VI 10:48 7. The Long View: Postlude 2:25.
Inspired by the paintings of Oliver Jackson, with whom Ehrlich was in residency at Harvard University for 10 weeks in 2000, and a painter whom Ehrlich has admired for almost 30 years, The Long View is a six-movement suite of tunes with a postlude scored for a sax sextet, a brass quintet, a string ensemble, and rhythm. The pieces have a chamber-jazz vibe-lots of close harmonies, little rhythmic movement, not much improv. And although the playing is impeccable, and there certainly are passages of real power, on the whole they sound rather sterile and static to these ears.

The Long View is a seven-movement suite inspired by the paintings of Oliver Jackson. It’s abstraction upon abstraction, as reedist Marty Ehrlich attempts to create the sonic equivalent of Jackson’s abstract visual images-but the art of music is already inherently abstract. In fact the two paintings in the liner foldout are complex, highly detailed, very active with black lines, yet shaded, distantly moody. Much of this description could apply to Ehrlich’s suite, too-it’s musical abstract impressionism, with ever-changing textures and momentum.

The American saxophonist Marty Erlich is a fearless, tonally-subtle improviser working at the margins of conventional tonality. This is an extensively through-composed set in six movements (originally written to interact with the work of an abstract painter, Oliver Jackson) and it features the cream of the New York avantgarde, including violinist Mark Feldman, bassist Mark Helias, drummers Bobby Previte and Pheeroan Aklaff, and pianist Wayne Horvitz.
