Album Notes
Spirit Dialogues features jazz-inflected interpretations of classic tunes, performed by Marcus Singletary on every instrument. An equal number of tracks represent his opinions on various topics related to the songs.

You know the story. Singletary is a self-taught rock musician who later attended music school to immerse himself in the jazz world. Spirit Dialogues merges both sensibilities with recordings such as Wayne Shorter's "Footprints" and "Radio and Records," which describes Singletary's early quest to locate albums by British bands Eric Burdon and the Animals, Spooky Tooth, and the Hollies, and American acts Arthur Lee and Love and the Buckinghams. Re-imagined, the classic Buddy Holly tune "Not Fade Away" features fiery guitar ballistics and an extended coda section, "L.A. Quake." "Wind and Wuthering" is an original impression of the final moments of Genesis' "All in a Mouse's Night." In the land of virtual reality, it places the artist on stage, axe in hand alongside the masters of progressive thought.

"Push the Envelope" sums it up best. As a multicultural journey at odds with current nationalistic trends in certain areas of the world, Marcus Singletary's music takes risks. It blurs musical boundaries, merges global influences, and demands equal engagement amongst all - including critics and fans alike. It's more of an entrance to, than an exit from, the world at large, and several spins of Spirit Dialogues - and a glance at its Suzuki Harunobu cover art - will provide at least a temporary respite from Trump-itis.
