ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Entangled Pathways by Gilliam, Milmine & Pottie is a collection of original music performed by this acoustic trio who met through the Toronto Improvisors Orchestra (TIO) with Bill Gilliam (piano & prepared piano), the exceptionally talented Kayla Milmine (soprano sax) who studies with saxophonist Sam Newsome, and Ambrose Pottie (drum set) who played with Crash Vegas. These pieces combine free floating melodies, jazz idioms and modal-chromatic tonalities as well as freely improvised creations by the ensemble. This music offers reflections on the rapidly changing and entangled terrains we live in and the many imagined pathways we could take.

"Pick of the week" - Avant Music News (AMN), Nov 17, 2017

“Bringing together three highly-flexible improvisers, this trio can show hints of melodic tunefulness alongside a collective will to derail those same instincts and head for thornier ground” - Joe Strutt, Mechanical Forest, Oct 2017.

“A night of celebration for the Entangled Pathways album, this trio moved easily between through-composed and more loosely structured pieces as well as some guided duo improvisations and "open" encounters. That's fitting as these three first connected through the Toronto Improvisors Orchestra. The night featured most of the album's pieces over two sets, ranging from stately textures to choppier sonic waters, with extended techniques from all three wending their way into the music.
Joe Strutt - Entangled Pathways CD Concert review, Toronto, Oct 18th 2017

Kayla Milmine's musical journey with the soprano saxophone is a familiar one amongst fellow straight-hornists: Having started out on the clarinet then the tenor saxophone, soon finding herself falling in love with the new and under-explored sonic possibilities that only the soprano saxophone can offer. Since beginning her soprano centric journey, she has developed a unique approach to the instrument that at times has the edginess and brashness of Anthony Braxton and Roscoe Mitchell, yet the warmth and thoughtfulness that's reminiscent of Steve Lacy.

Ambrose Pottie is a musician, phonographer and electroacoustic performer/composer, with recordings featured on Quiet American.com and Webbed Hand Records. He is a founding member of the Toronto Improvisor’s Orchestra, and has recorded and/or performed with: Fred Frith workshop orchestra, Andrew Cyrille, Eugene Chadbourne, The Polka Dogs, Bill Grove, Blue Rodeo, Flaming Dono Drum and Dance Ensemble, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Thin Men and Bill Bissett.
Ambrose was a founding member of Toronto band Crash Vegas, recording three albums and touring Canada And U.S. extensively.
