Fiona's Comments

Oh my. A terrifically lyrical tune that shines through with some beautiful sound. Sax and piano take turns swirling around a focused rhythm section that fits in seamlessly with the soloists.The artist uses the word "collective" above. This track is proof that the word wasn't used carelessly. Beautiful song, can't wait to hear the rest of the album.

About the Album

For his third Origin recording, composer and Princeton professor Anthony Branker features his quartet, Word Play, in a set of original compositions that seek to emphasize the interactions and conversational dynamic that take place within a collective. With a stellar band of New York-based improvisors - saxophonist Ralph Bowen, pianist Jim Ridl, bassist Kenny Davis and drummer Adam Cruz - Branker creates another inspired recording of new and original modern jazz.
