David Gilmore & Energies of Change

In his continuing exploration into the correlations and connections between the natural world and elements of music, David Gilmore has brought together a group of like-minded jazz improvisers, that are steeped in both the rich jazz tradition as well as having their finger on the pulse of today's contemporary music.

The title of the group, Energies of Change, refers to the phenomena of an ever-changing and unpredictable world that continues to defy mankind's attempts to make it more understandable and manageable. The immediacy and spontaneity of musical improvisation is a direct reflection and expression of life's hidden intelligence, and to move and groove with the Energies of Change is to truly be in the Moment of Now, and at least for brief moments, transcend the illusion of Space and Time.  The music of the ensemble is both a reflection of the past and the future, bringing post-bop elements of swing mixed with odd-meter moments of fury.  

Personnel: Marcus Strickland - tenor/alto sax & bass clarinet, Luis Perdomo - piano, Ben Williams - bass, Antonio Sanchez - drums

Their debut recording is scheduled for release in the Fall of 2015 on the Evolutionary Music Label.
