Album Notes
Enclave was founded in 2003 by saxophonist/ percussionist Hilary Noble and pianist Rebecca Cline with a view to reinterpreting the Latin/jazz fusion for the 21st century. The group paints with a broad palette of Afro-Latin and jazz colors and its music has variously been described as fiery, refreshing, and forward-looking.

Enclave released its first, eponymous title on Zoho in 2005 to critical acclaim and strong support from New England-based fans. The recipient of a 2007 New Works Commission from Chamber Music America, Enclave premiered the new suite, Clay, Iron, Water, in the fall of 2008 in Boston and New York. Enclave Diaspora, the quartet’s second release, offers fresh material whose engaging melodies belie the adventurous harmonies and rhythms that bubble underneath.

“Revel in the music of this, [Enclave’s] second work, as it is brought to you by musicians who have reverence for the ancient and are here demonstrating its brilliant future.”

- Bobby Sanabria

•“Enclave gets my vote for best jazz CD of the year.” (Norman Weinstein/AllAboutJazz)

•Top Ten of 2005 (Tomas Peña/LatinJazzNet)

•“…excellent chemistry and enjoyable passages from beginning to end.” (Nelson Rodríguez/Latin Beat)

•“…unquestionable a hint of what’s to come in jazz.” (Peter Watrous/Descarga)

CD Concept: ENCLAVE/DIASPORA, DIASPORA/ENCLAVE...two opposing yet connected poles

ENCLAVE implying the enclosed, the separate, the special community

DIASPORA speaking to the dispersion of that community, its casting out, its "seeding forth" (Greek—"dia": through, "spora": seed)

ENCLAVE as a group is a laboratory of artistic ferment, a tightly-knit organization (going on five years strong!) of singular musical minds, an enclave for perfecting a distinctive musical voice amid the cacophony of cultural noise.

Our DIASPORA speaks to our diverse origins (Córdoba, Argentina; Athens, Georgia; Geneva, Switzerland; Lexington, Massachusetts) and is a celebration of the diasporic Afro-Atlantic musics that come to bear on our work (Afro-Cuban chant, funk, Brazilian chorinho etc. etc.) We take as guiding spirit for this record that magnificent diasporic avatar Yemaya/Iemanja, Afro-Atlantic goddess of salt waters and protectress of those who set out on their diasporic venturings.

Enclave Diaspora
Immmensely attractive and listenable. Breaks new ground in fusion. World-class ensemble playing, by extremely talented, musically literate and inventive performers.
