Title:

House of Return

Artist(s):

The Jeff Gauthier Goatette




Violinist Jeff Gauthier's Goatette, featuring Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, drummer Alex Cline, pianist David Witham, and bassist Joel Hamilton, cuts an impressively wide musical swath. "House of Return," Gauthier's latest recording and 5th as a leader, moves seamlessly from acoustic modern jazz and creative new music compositions to electronic space jams, creating a superbly crafted musical architecture. A Downbeat Rising star as both violinist and producer in the 2007 Downbeat Critics Poll, "House of Return" reaffirms Gauthier's credibility as creative force in modern jazz.

The LA Times says, "Gauthier's compositions are quirky and offbeat, bubbling with unexpected rhythms and warm lyricism." BBCi says "Gauthier and his group show how it should be done, rooting themselves solidly in the jazz tradition while at the same time extending and revitalizing it."
