LUCIAN BAN (PIANO)
ABRAHAM BURTON (TENOR SAX)
JOHN HÉBERT (BASS)
ERIC MCPHERSON (DRUMS)


Transylvanian born - NYC based pianist/composer Lucian Ban is one of the hottest properties on the jazz scene since his arrival in the US. Here he has assembled an outstanding quartet featuring some of the best musicians in New York. Saxophonist Abraham Burton has been a member of the Mingus Big Band since 1998, John Hébert is one of the most in demand bassists around and alongside drummer Eric McPherson has formed a formidable rhythm team to accompany pianists such as Andrew Hill and Fred Hersch. Elevation epitomizes jazz at its best,music that reinvents the idiom, a sound flux that grows out of the great jazz tradition but looks into the future.

"...Like Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner and other vanguard band leaders of that era, the Romanian born pianist-composer Lucian Ban alongside saxophonist Abraham Burton, bassist John Hébert and drummer Eric McPherson, favor searching post bop that cranes toward the avant-garde without losing the buoyance of swing" Time Out NY
