Desperately seeking something. If the world was still flat, these guys might fall off. Thanks to gravity.

About the Album

Franklin Kiermyer: drums; Azar Lawrence: saxophone; Benito Gonzalez: piano; Juini Booth: bass.

This is all new music from a working band of acclaimed musicians who share the vision to go further. Further than what they've done before and further into the expansive heart of the spirit.

"Franklin Kiermyer conveys a spiritual feeling through his music that reaches each listener in different ways. Without being locked into a musical category, it always sounds like him. Further expands on the avenue opened by John Coltrane with albums like Sun Ship and First Meditations. Franklin's music is wide-ranging with a singularity of purpose.” --Michael Cuscuna , co-producer

"Such a powerful and beautiful recording … an album that makes a potent case for music as a spiritual vehicle, an outpouring from the heart so direct, so palpable, that it's a truly—and unavoidably—cathartic experience. A clear reflection of the myriad emotions which comprise the human condition, if there's any justice, Further—co-produced to perfection by Kiermyer and another key jazz figure of the past half century, Michael Cuscuna—will find its way onto many year-end 'best of' lists" - John Kelman, All About Jazz
