Music has taken saxophonist and composer Phil Scarff and pianist Lewis Porter to many places. They have performed and recorded around the world, as have their colleagues bassist John Funkhouser and drummer Bertram Lehmann. These four musicians have all been to numerous crossroads of world music and jazz, which is why this project really sings. The Lewis Porter-Phil Scarff Group’s new Three Minutes to Four is contemporary, east-meets-west jazz, where Indian raga merges with western classical, where Ghanaian traditional fuses with improvisational, and where organic meets studied. Three Minutes to Four is at once deeply felt and eminently accessible, a celebration of musical multiculturalism filtered through a prism of real jazz.
