Imagine a group that, in large measure, references the bebop revolution of nearly seventy-five years ago, yet steers clear of the pitfalls of nostalgia, hero worship, and blatant imitation, and ultimately wins the day with an adroit blend of teamwork and compelling individual voices. For those who believe that nothing good can come from contemporary players choosing to work an all-too-familiar vein of the jazz tradition, I suggest a visit with Dmitry Baevsky's band. Over the past several years, the alto saxophonist's quartet featuring pianist Jeb Patton, bassist David Wong, and drummer Joe Strasser, has often performed at Smalls Jazz Club in New York City. The fruits of their labor are documented for the first time in The Day After, Baevsky's sixth record date as a leader.
