Sister In Kith
In every performance, the shapes and contours of the music develop organically; different every time, always seeking. The sound is steeped in the free jazz of the 1960's, but the music can and does go anywhere: the blues, high modernism, celestial spiritual vamps and European folklore are all part of the family.
Influences come from far and wide. "Sockeyed / Loose Laces" is a meditation in Bartokian rhapsodising; dream of a common language is a child of Paul Motian's rubato ballads; "Sound Logic / Sound Magic" is a roguish nod to Anthony Braxton; "Brimful" is surreal Ornette swing. The final track, "A Mackerel's Tale", featuring special guest Nel Begley, spins a narrative about a woman who metamorphoses into a sea creature. The end result is an album which is willing to borrow from anything and everything it can to achieve its aims.
