ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"As Jerry Garcia of 'The Grateful Dead' noted. 'fusion is the great strength of American music.' Within these tunes are influences as diverse as blues French impressionism, bebop, and Latin (urban and folkloric). In these exquisitely crafted compositions there is a rarified magic that consistently delights us... this is soulful stuff of a very high caliber.... an organic marriage of ethnic and contemporary ingredients." M. Friedman

This is an excursion through alien soundscapes with a happy ending. One moment our senses are spiraling through time and space, the next, we stand on a sidewalk hearing the existential wailing of sirens and saxophones, dancing a mambo on a beach near a fresh oil slick, channeling Miles, soaring condor-like above the Andes and all the while... the drums... this is the kind of music that must have drums... the groove is.

"And now: the journey through the 'familiar unknown.'" J.L. Holmes
