Review of 'Ferryman's Release'
One of the most intriguing local jazz projects I heard this year came from the trio Riversticks. Composed of percussionist Michael Moses, drummer Abby Rader and reedman Richard Brookens, Riversticks blends an array of globe-spanning percussive toys with deep dark drumming, some very modern saxophone and some very ancient bamboo flute - a sort of world beat meets modern jazz approach readily apparent on their debut recording, 'The Ferryman's Release'.
