The debut release from bassist Matt Booth's quartet Palindromes features an all-star cast of New Orleans improvisers, including Brad Walker on saxophones, Chris Alford on guitar, and Doug Garrison on drums. This latest release from trombonist Jeff Albert's Breakfast for Dinner Records, which has released a slew of new records from young bands in recent months, showcases three of Booth’s originals and cover material from diverse sources ranging from Paul Motion (a touchstone inspiration for the group) to Ennio Morricone and the under-performed Antonio Carlos Jobim composition “Zingaro.” Matt Booth & Palindromes has been performing in New Orleans since 2016, and this album, which represents a small portion of the group's repertoire, explores a variety of moods and textures, from the patiently meditative to the wildly bombastic, with an emphasis on deep listening and collective play.
