Mark Feldman

String soloists in classical music can have such a big
sound that it’s a shame so few of them play jazz with
the right rhythmic feeling. The violinist Mark Feldman
is one of the big exceptions. Best known as an
improviser, he has classical music in his background,
and in “What Exit,” out next week on ECM, he
establishes a midcareer high with a great band, which
includes the British pianist John Taylor, the Swedish
bassist Anders Jormin and the American drummer Tom
Rainey. Mixing classical technique (and double-stops
from country music, used sparingly) with
stretched-out, space-filled improvisation, he lets his
compositions breathe deeply...Ben Ratliff
