Auand Records presents Singular Curves, a collaboration between bassist Steve Swallow, saxophonist Ohad Talmor, and drummer Adam Nussbaum. In an August 2014 review of Singular Curves, New York Times jazz critic Nate Chinen lauded the three for their "easy chemistry... that gives 'Singular Curves' its claim to singularity." Chinen described the record's merits both on its own terms and as a continuation of the tradition of saxophone-bass-drums trios, dating back to Sonny Rollins' A Night At The "Village Vanguard" (1958). Chinen notes that "Within those parameters, even a tweak can feel like a push against established precedent," and cites Swallow's idiosyncratic electric bass stylings as a main force behind the group's unique sound and approach, also mentioning that "trios usually call up triangular metaphors, so the suggestion of curvature in this album's title feels like a subtle subversion." Steve Swallow: electric bass; Ohad Talmor: tenor saxophone; Adam Nussbaum: drums. Recorded by Jay Anderson at Mountain Rest Studios, New Paltz, New York; produced by Swallow, Talmor, and Nussbaum with Marco Valente as executive producer; cover art by Jeff Preiss.
