    Canadian saxophonist/composer Mark Nodwell surfaces as a formidable modern jazz composer on Nemesis, where he puts down his sax in favor of having others carry out his musical plan. Nodwell handpicked these musicians for this set consisting of nine original compositions. Notables such as Colorado-based trumpeter Ron Miles, pianist Art Lande, and others execute the artist's material in superb fashion. With this production, the listener will embark upon a multifaceted expedition, brimming with subtle intricacies and poignant dreamscapes. Electric guitarist Khabu Doug Young is apt to put matters into overdrive on occasion. Yet Lande, bassist Drew Gress, and drummer Tom Rainey often engage in odd-metered rhythmic exercises amid a few atypically constructed passages, derived from the free jazz scheme of things. In addition, Miles executes some knotty bop lines via linearly devised themes. The thrust of this outing resides within the rather supple flow, dappled with soft melodies and the soloists' often-striking harmonic excursions. Overall, the musicians perform Nodwell's works with a burning desire as programs like this might insinuate a bit of renewed faith for modern jazz aficionados. ~ Glenn Astarita
