Irtijal's BAC sessions concluded with an entertaining set from the virtuoso quartet Spera/Edwards/Doerner/Conca.The stuff of Boesser-Ferrari's recital may have been the melody of a single folk tune but the musician's imaginative use of his instrument made the experience more complex.As master of ceremonies Mazen Kerbaj pointed out, on stage pianist Chris Abrahams, double bassist Lloyd Swanton and percussionist Tony Buck look like a classic jazz trio.While the ensemble commanded it, however, there was nothing typical in the improv sound arising from the minimally lit stage.The piece began with Abrahams tentatively striking a few keys, as if to test the instrument's timbre. Absent was the familiar jazz dynamic of a soloist stepping up while other instruments temporarily receded. The wash of acoustic sound ebbed and flowed throughout the performance, with the voice of piano, double bass or percussion sometimes rising to prominence before the notes of a phrase were disassembled.
