Recorded with some of New York's greatest jazz musicians, Dave Lisik's Machaut Man and a Superman Hat is contemporary jazz at its most assured. This masterful album is exceptional on every level, a strong, fully focused statement from one of Rattle's finest contemporary artists.
“Machaut Man and a Superman Hat was an amazingly enjoyable project to put together knowing that this band was going to tear through these tunes. Being at the recording was an opportunity to see these players in their element, especially at Systems Two, a studio that feels like a second home.The compositions on this album were collected over several years, a few older originals and others written recently specifically for this recording. As a composer, you appreciate it when professionalmusicians are willing to spend time working on something you've written; you know that they'vededicated years to be able to play well, but the five guys on this recording play jazz at the highest level,and their collective playing is gorgeous.” – Dave Lisik
