The quintet has evolved from
Hemingway´s long standing compositional platform that began in 1985 with
the recording of „Outerbridge Crossing“ and has enjoyed numerous
incarnations while retaining its penchant for an integrative
compositional/improvisational ensemble approach. What that adds up to is
a compositional practice that has refined a way to frame the individual
members unique sonic, interpretive and improvisational vocabulary with
pieces that are detailed, structured and rich with content. The
character of the music is multi-faceted, from coloristic subtlety to
visceral intensity, sometimes the groove is deep and other times the
rhythmic interplay is elaborate and mischievous.
The quintet will be touring material from their July 2011 release
entitled „Riptide“ on the Clean Feed label as well as presenting some
re-arrangments of previous quintet material for this new instrumentation
and personnel which combines players from ongoing & previous
quartet and quintet.

Fernando Gonzales, Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

….the compositions are the star of the
show. Hemingway is going where few jazz musicians have gone before, and
he´s doing it with rare intelligence and musical sophistication. In
fact, this album is so good, I´m inspired to dust off the most hackneyed
two-word phrase in the critics lexicon: „highly recommended.“ Seldom
has its use been more apt.“

Chris Kelsey, CounterCurrents – JazzTimes

….Hemingways opulent compositions cover a broad stylistic
spectrum, their subtle differences are always sublimated into his
singular language…..His effortless modulations between time signatures
and timbral dynamics prove endlessly fascinating, yet his surprisingly
unorthodox arrangements and idiosyncratic reinterpretations of
conventional forms are equally impressive.
Troy Collins Point of Departure – September Issue – 2011

„Hemingways quintet is certainly capable of a multitude of moods and
genres, and altogether Riptide is a rich, unusual CD, a treasure of
sounds and rhythms and dancing lines. And Hemingway proves once again
that tradition doesn´t necessarily mean stale, witness the fresh breath
he infuses into this classic jazz lineup.“
