ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A beautiful album, all first or second takes. Ruminative, confrontational, lyrical, folkloric...mixed genre music with a fine ensemble of players versed in jazz, rock, western classical, cumbia, funk, do wop, ragtime, and the bardic tradition. Original songs, 30% rustic crooning, 70% instrumental and interactive. Along the lines of 'Astral Weeks' or "Happy/Sad', with overtones of Asian, Mexican, 70s loft jazz, and French music.
In the press:

“…This is visual music of the first order performed with great aplomb by a tight ensemble who feed off each other’s inspirations and ever-so-slight cues to take us on a journey along the “Rivers” of the mind. A welcome and exciting addition to an already impressive discography.”
–Jeff Penczak, Terrascope

“(the) drumming is a cross between Jack DeJohnette and Levon Helm….like Levon, Dave was blessed with a sweet voice and the ability to play stringed instruments. Like Jack, he ‘knows’ compositions. . .in my mind, the most consistent and most listenable record to emerge from the Bay Area in a long time…”
–Pat Thomas, founder of Heyday Records. author of ‘Listen, Whitey. The sounds of the Black Power movement 1965-1975’. editor/publisher of ‘Ptolemaic Telescope’

“ ‘Rivers’ is the second Shimmering Leaves Ensemble studio album, and it plays like a slowly unfolding painting. Trumpet, tenor and soprano sax, bass clarinet and viola provide aural brush strokes of varying widths and pressures….it moves at a pace anyone can follow, allowing the beautiful, thoughtful melodies and structures of the tunes to envelope the listener’s psyche”.
–Michael Fortes, PopDose
