Guitarist John Abercrombie – who has recorded as a leader for ECM since 1974 – returns with a second album by his quartet featuring Marc Copland on piano, along with longtime rhythm partners Drew Gress on double-bass and Joey Baron on drums. As with the group's 2013 effort 39 Steps, the virtues of lyrical melody and harmonic/rhythmic subtlety are apparent on Up and Coming, though with even more emphasis on the enduring values of song. Abercrombie's liquid phrasing and glowing tone – enabled by the thumb technique he has honed since eschewing a plectrum in recent years – animate his five originals and the pair by Copland, as well as a take on the Miles Davis classic "Nardis" done in the spirit of Bill Evans. Up and Coming has a twilight atmosphere, with melodic flow the guiding light.
