Sync might be envisioned as a modified sax/bass/drum trio, where the bassist has been replaced by Jerome Harris on either acoustic guitar or acoustic bass guitar, and where the drummer’s role is taken by Samir Chatterjee on tabla and dumbek. With Rothenberg moving among alto sax, clarinet, bass clarinet, and the Japanese shakuhachi and composing looping ribbons of melody with odd rhythmic contours, the trio has found a most palatable merger of jazz and Asian music.

The uncommon instrumentation is enhanced by a shared sense of purpose that gives Sync its winning character. Each player displays both the techniques and the sensitivity required to function as both soloist and accompanist, allowing Sync to maintain its three-way conversations after Rothenberg has finished soloing. This is not simply a matter of the leader’s ability to sustain extended melodic and rhythmic variations at lower volumes through circular breathing; it also results from the assurance that allows Harris to sustain a pronounced rhythmic underpinning in his guitar work and rare melodic fluency on bass. Chatterjee, who can sing and then play back the most complex patterns in the manner of the great tabla masters, also senses how to highlight more compact, swing-oriented parts through shifts in accents and dynamics.

It's difficult, almost ridiculous, to say "setting sentiment aside" when talking about someone as beloved yet overlooked as Chapin, but all told the trio disc Harbinger is a better record. Rothenberg's compositions aren't belabored, but they certainly aren't simple and as brilliantly executed by Jerome Harris on acoustic guitar and acoustic bass guitar and Samir Chatterjee on table, they resonate. The tablas are used smartly, not suggestively and Harris is great throughout. The clipped phrases of "One-Oh-Nine" in particular are just surprising: in five brief minutes the head is snipped and spliced as if they don't have enough time to play it; it would be rushed were it not so perfectly executed.

Rothenberg is a wonder on the reeds and is probably about the best shakuhachi player in jazz. Harbinger shows him at his best as a player, composer and bandleader.
