In September 1972, the Elvin Jones Group recorded three sets of music at the famous Lighthouse Club in Hermosa Beach, California. This recording went on to become legendary and still referred to in iconic terms in the present era. Elvin, who made jazz history as a member of the Classic Quartet with John Coltrane began his role as a bandleader in the late 1960s with a succession of groups, most often using a saxophone(s) front line and no piano, which was still considered an unorthodox instrumentation at the time.
Decades later, the group “New Light” celebrates that era with Liebman and Perla as part of the original line up, augmented by drummer Adam Nussbaum (who descends directly from the Elvin Jones school of drumming) and Adam Niewood, a contemporary saxophonist completely in touch with the past, present and future of the music. The repertoire looks back and forward at the same time, but one thing is for sure. The energy of “New Light” is palpable and visceral, harking back to a time when bands played on a night to night basis, employing the same repertoire and personnel, with the attitude of “taking no prisoners!!” Experiencing “New Light” brings the listener back and forward at the same time.
