"There's a saying in Portugal which tells us that there isn't two things without a third one, and the confirmation seems universal: Elliott Sharp's Octal project has a new volume, the third, with more material coming from his very special Koll 8-string guitar/bass, an electroacoustic hollow-bodied guitar with two extra bass strings built by the luthier Saul Koll.

No! With its reinterpretations of the music composed by Thelonious Monk, "Sharp? Monk? Sharp! Monk!" wasn't the most "jazzy" recording that multi-instrumentalist Elliott Sharp could conceive. In "Aggregat" we find him (in a way similar to his soundtrack to the film "Spectropia") using this musical language as if he always did it in such an integral and authentic way. Choosing the tenor and soprano saxophones as principal vehicles of expression (only sometimes do we hear his trademark electric guitar), what we have here is rhythmic and melodic jazz with a twist, in which improvisation expands from both written scores and conceptual approaches.

Mathematics and the various sciences are just ordered ways of looking at and analyzing all of the raw data supplied by the universe. It's all about mappings and correspondences. At the same time, my work often takes a speculative and irrational/intuitive approach. It includes both the ordered and rational, the intuitive and irrational, and the acoustics of the ear. - Elliott Sharp

These pieces demonstrate an overwhelming potency, emerging from their respectively huge contrasts, where minute pitches become assimilated into grinding, juddering walls of near-chaotic overload, where clean cycles of rhythm become overlaid and superimposed into dense strata of complex polyphony. ...Sharp’s (b. 1951) music can be radiant, ethereal, alluring and overwhelming. A magnificent disc.

The first Aggregat edition was a rather conventional trio with a hard bop matrix, something very unusual when the leader is someone like Elliott Sharp. Yes, the guitarist who, in “Sharp? Monk? Sharp! Monk!”, brought back Thelonious Monk’s jazz to the avant-garde, but is generally committed to a syncretic mix of urban idioms going from blues and rock to contemporary writing and experimental procedures. In that first recording, titled as the name of the present band, he played mostly saxophones (tenor and soprano) and bass clarinet, only occasionally fingering his first instrument.

Elliott Sharp is one of New York downtown scene's more notorious affiliates, primarily heralded for his avant-garde guitar work, spanning jazz improvisation, jazz-rock, and blues-rock. He's also an accomplished reedman, evidenced on Quintet and previous ventures into the free-jazz space. Sharp once again aligns with like- minded New York-based artists, some of whom are leaders, and busy session artists.
