The Individuation Quartet/Quintet recorded music back on April 27 and 28, 2016 at The Bunker and May 27, 2016 at Sear Sound for my next full length album, Dialogical. The Individuation Quartet was joined by Brittany Anjou (vibraphone, gyil), as well as Cheryl Pyle on flutes, Jon Crowley on trumpet, Sean Sonderegger (Skirl Records) on tenor saxophone, James Brandon Lewis (BNS Sessions) on tenor saxophone, and Sarah Mullins (Gamalan Dharma Swara ensemble) on marimba and triangles.
The Sear Sound session featured a very special guest, the great Lionel Loueke (Blue Note Records) on guitar and vocals. Unified by the concept of dialogism as a plurality of selves, worlds, and styles, the music is a mix of modern mixed meter jazz compositions, free improvisations, and a totally notated new minimalist chamber work, featuring encounters with personalities in the improvised music spectrum.
I have to thank the Individuation ensemble for going above and beyond in the preparation and execution of some difficult music. I am very grateful to all of them for their sustained interest and immersion in my musical world.
