"Sustenance" by Steven Lugerner
From the album
These Are The Words
By Steven Lugerner
I've been comparing this album favorably to Brian Blade's Season of Changes. Some challenging dissonance which neverbstrays into inaccessible territories. Myra Melford's presence on the album is palpable from the get-go, so if you like her work on other projects, this will float your boat, too.
About the Album
Steven Lugerner- Saxophones, Clarinets, Double Reeds, Flute; Darren Johnston- Trumpet, Flugelhorn; Myra Melford - Piano; Matt Wilson- Drums. The music written for These Are The Words contains one composition for each book of the Hebrew Bible. The first five tracks should ideally be listened to as a work unto itself, similar to a symphonic suite.
