Recording Info

Recorded at AirWave Recording Studios, Chicago, IL, May 1997

Produced by: Georg Gräwe
Executive Producer: Bruno Johnson
Engineer: John McCortney

On Melodie und Rhythmus Grawe’s quartet plays with the rhythmic intricacy one would expect from a group powered by Hamid Drake and bassist Kent Kessler, and its sophisticated melodic sense is extended through sinuous lines, evolved by the pianist’s remarkable fluency, and matched by Frank Gratkowski’s agile and expressive clarinet and alto. The music is busy, but there is a lot of listening going on. It is a genuine group recording of rare attentiveness and responsiveness.

— Julian Cowley, The Wire, July 1998
