Children of the Light


Danilo Pérez, John Patitucci and Brian Blade have been three quarters of the extraordinary Wayne Shorter Quartet for more than a decade, whilst also leading their own projects and performing in various groups. Now, on 'Children of the Light', they step forward as a trio for the first time with an imagination and fearlessness in their approach that defies the roles and ways of a trio in both obvious and subtle ways.

Daring and luminous, often an improbable mix of pointed, questioning turns and childlike joy, the music unfolds with mischievous unpredictability. The eleven tracks include original compositions by all three members of the trio and a fresh take on "Dolores", an old Shorter classic.

It's a remarkable balancing act but even as they put their considerable talents to the service of the trio, each of the members maintains his distinct personality.

"We can 'comprovise' (spontaneous composition) with dense harmonic and melodic forms, but we can also explore the beauty of a simple harmony," says Pérez. "And you can see the care each one of us put into the songs we brought in."
