Fiona's Comments

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

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
