Album Notes
Recorded at a live concert in February 2010, The Blue Shift presents a musical
narrative that combines science with spirituality. Glover and the reputable Center Search Quest rhythm section- bassist Christopher Dean Sullivan, drummer Michael T.A. Thompson, and pianist Eri Yamamoto- expand on the theories of physicists Edwin Hubble, Albert Einstein, Fritz
Zwicky and others by asking what the universe might look like if God initiated
multiple big bangs, rather than beginning from a single point. A programmatic
series of improvisational structures guides the listener through a hypothetical
history of time and space, expanding and contracting in an ongoing celestial

This deluxe combined DVD/CD edition presents the entire concert in 5.1
surround sound and video clarity. As a special bonus, the set also features a
recording of Maurice Ravel's Bolero performed by Glover's legendary Juice
Quartet in the mid 1970’s
