Possibly the sounds of surfaces you walk past on the way home from work, might you take a drum stick and drag it along each one without stopping. #deconstructedconstructions #arty

About the Album

'Kabuki' historically can be defined as a type of stylized dance and drama in Japanese culture. Building off of this, "Kabuki" is a track off of drummer Phil Haynes’ first solo CD, "Sanctuary". This recording of original music for solo drum-set brings a lifetime of unaccompanied experimentation and study into focus over the course of an hour-long performance that blurs the lines between composition and improvisation, sound and space, instinct and action, as well as classical new music and spontaneous 'free' composition. Full of rich musical textures, mysterious sonics and startling gestures, "Sanctuary" is a compelling excursion that reveals Haynes’ inventive thought process in real-time action.

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.
