“That Depends on What You Know, has really thrown a wrench into the increasingly calcified "jazz canon." "Two Bass Blipsch" from disc 1 (an obvious reference to John Lewis and Dizzy Gillespie's "Two Bass Hit") opens with Vijay Iyer playing the piano strings with such rhythmic precision that it sounds like it's been "looped"; once Tate brings the drums in percussion becomes the improvisational driving force. While everything is improvised, Tate uses conduction to create particular conversations and dialogues, as in the way he brings out Eisa Davis's voice interpolating triplet figures.”
