David Gilmore & Numerology - Live at Jazz Standard
2012 Evolutionary Music
Numerology Suite is a musical exploration into the mystical, divine, and spiritual meaning of numbers, which reflect the creation of the Universe and the underlying structure upon which the material world is built. Music is the language of the Universe, and the elements of music - harmony, melody and rhythm, are all expressions of number. Pythagoras, the father of mathematics, taught that the numbers one through nine represent the universal principles and progressive cycles in life. Here, David Gilmore invites the listener on a musical journey as he interprets these nine musical cycles through sound and vibration.

"Unified Presence" is the sophomore release and a major musical statement from jazz guitarist David Gilmore. The eleven new Gilmore tunes that make up "Unified Presence" showcase the artist as a tremendous composer with unparalleled expressive powers on the electric and acoustic guitar.One of the most in-demand guitarists in jazz, it’s only fitting that Gilmore would call upon a jaw dropping cast of A-List musicians for his new CD: Christian McBride on bass, Ravi Coltrane on saxophone, and Jeff "Tain" Watts on drums. Chilean singer Claudia Acuña drops in for an added treat – a gorgeous vocal on the album’s closer, "Broken Kiss."
