Fiona's Comments

A pretty tune that builds on its original theme, creating delicate tensions in the process. Collin's sax in the opening sequence is a real treat that keeps on giving. Jazz from the Baltimore, MD scene.

About the Album

Personnel: Cam Collins (saxophone), JJ Wright (piano, wurlitzer), Adam Hopkins (bass), and Nathan Ellman-Bell (drums).

Wright's composition is influenced by 20th century American Minimalists Steve Reich and John Adams, and focuses on repetitive themes and cells that, once introduced, are deconstructed, permuted, and recomposed, giving the listener multiple perspectives of the same theme.
