Vibraphonist Mike Mainieri is hardly the first jazz artist to pay tribute to John Coltrane, but he may very well be the first to do so accompanied solely by alto saxophone (the late Charlie Mariano) and double bass (German Dieter Ilg) - no drummer or pianist in sight. A double CD recorded in 2005, four years before Mariano's death, Crescent is a largely low-key affair. It unfolds at a leisurely pace and rarely kicks up any serious dust; the artists prefer to stay on a reflective, unhurried path that leaves lots of open space in which they can maneuver.
Crescent Mike Mainieri. This album has an average beat per minute of 114 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 83/170 BPM).
Mike Mainieri: Crescent by Mark Corroto, published on July 30, 2010. Mainieri and longtime friend Mariano conceived and recorded this session with bassist Dieter Ilg in 2005. Mariano, a bebop protege in the 1950s, would play with Stan Kenton, Toshiko Akiyoshi and Charles Mingus, before exploring fusion and Indian music. Like Coltrane, his graduation from bebop was one into the possibilities of a universal sound. Mainieri played with Buddy Rich, Dizzy Gillespie, and Wes Montgomery. His prestige was earned as founder of Steps Ahead, with Michael Brecker-a unique and innovative fusion band.

Legendary vibraphonist Mike Mainieri, the leader of Steps Ahead, joins alto saxophonist Charlie Mariano and bassist Dieter Ilg in a double-CD tribute to John Coltrane, Crescent. Mainieri says, 'This was one of Charlie Mariano's last recordings before his death in 2009. Just about every selection on this 2-CD set was a first take. Very good album, these three top musicians play sensitive and soulfull and really enjoy playing together leaving each other space to improvise. A real joy to hear Charlie Marino play so good, if you like this album, also listen to "Tango para Charlie" with Quique Sinesi.
