About the Album

This track was released as a single. It is completely improvised. The title is taken from T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets. Born into Beauty was recorded pre-pandemic by Hi5 Studio. It was mixed by our very own Steve Davit, and mastered during covid at Turtle Studios. All in Philadelphia, PA Song titles are mostly taken from and inspired by T.S. Eliot and Dylan Thomas. All pieces are improvised. Pulse Flow is improvised around an event piece score by Steve Davit Those who knew nothing (TEN22) is improvised from a graphic score by Mick Ricereto Album artwork by Mick Ricereto

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
