Tineke Postma: For the Rhythm

Dutch soprano/alto saxophonist Tineke Postma has a hard, appealing sound on both instruments and a free-flowing imagination that can contain wide contrasts of texture and mood within the same improvisation.

Another positive first impression of For the Rhythm (her second recording as a leader) is its balance and unity as a complete album statement. Postma’s compositions are intelligent and purposeful and varied. Every track has strong blowing but also direction. Postma uses guitarist Edoardo Righini, keyboardist Rob van Bavel and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington like a painter building a collage. She configures them in opposition or unison, in counterpoint or alone, and manipulates colors by changing instrumentation (her own two horns, acoustic or electric guitar and piano).
