Metamorphosis | Andromeda

Welcome back, subscribers. You’re getting a first and exclusive look at this take of Andromeda, the first piece in the suite Metamorphosis that I produced in December for your 2017 Subscription Series. It was such an honor to get to call some of my heroes for the recording of this composed/improvised music. Throughout 2017 there will be tracks — many of them quartets made up of various subgroupings — from Metamorphosis on this feed. There is also a live premiere at Lincoln Center March 3 & 4, 2017. I am very grateful for these opportunities to present improvised music with these masters.

Dave Douglas, Wadada Leo Smith, trumpets; Oliver Lake, saxophone; Fred Frith, guitar; Matt Mitchell, modular synth; Kris Davis, piano; Yasushi Nakamura, acoustic bass; Andrew Cyrille, drums.

Recorded and mixed by Tyler McDiarmid at The Samurai Hotel Recording Studio in Queens, NYC. December 5, 2016.

Greenleaf Subscribers can stream and download Ursa Major on Bandcamp along with all of the tracks from the Metamorphosis series.
