ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is the debut recording of the Shakers n’ Bakers, a group which performs Shaker “Vision” songs, received in states of trance by young women of the Shaker religious community during the years 1830-50. These songs were researched in Shaker archives and many are sung in languages of inspiration (including moon language). This music is interpreted through the lens of creative music by leading improvisors on the New York scene, and travels stylistically from free jazz to rock anthems, but always with love and respect for the sacred origins of the songs. This genre-defying recording poses the provacative question, “Was Albert Ayler a Shaker?”. Free jazz or Christian rock? You decide.
