Album Notes
The DKO Electric Quartet is the latest addition to the diverse musical organization of trombonist/composer Darren Kramer. DKO The Darren Kramer Organization has been Kramer's creative outlet for over a decade as it encompasses his many interests of musical styles for both live performances and studio recordings.

Having produced three highly impressive CDs of unique and complex arrangements for his DKO 10-piece, Kramer has now formed a new 4-piece group that primarily features improvisation and the use of high-tech electronics and loops to create innovative sounds and unique textures.

INSPIRATION: James Brown / Maceo Parker / Brecker Brothers / Tribal Tech / Weather Report / Joe Zawinul / John Scofield / Miles Davis

Does your band want to play DKO songs? ALL tracks on ALL 4 Cds are available as charts for small group and big band. BUY NOW at DarrenKramer.Org

Thoughts from the composer:
Hello DKO fans! You may recognize some familiar melodies on the first half of this recording. Performing these songs live with the DKO Electric Quartet has required me to present them in a simpler, more organic manner, especially considering the lack of instrumentation. Therefore, I have rearranged the same melodies over a less restrictive form and harmonic structure to allow the musicians greater freedom to express themselves thru improvisation. Furthermore, these new arrangements have taken on a new life which I felt also warranted new titles.

The “Water of Life” Suite was actually inspired by my growing appreciation for fine single malt scotch! Each movement of this suite is a musical tour of my four favorite distilleries.

NOTE: There are NO guitars on this recording. All EFX and parts resembling a guitar have been performed by trombone.

I play trombone and guitar and when I heard the two combined it blew my mind away. What Darren does with his trombone is amazing. The more I listen to it the more things I find in it. Darren has a creative mind and I hope everone has a chance to hear this CD. It was worth every penny.
