Metamorphosis | Hercules

Hercules.

Right before this take Andrew Cyrille looked at me from across the studio and said, “Hercules, right?” This track sounds uncannily like the running, charging figure in the constellation. Kris Davis and I had never played together before this session. It was one of the great joys to find this musical dialogue with her through all the kinetic activity of Andrew and Matt Mitchell on modular synth. This was a new instrument for Matt, and it’s kind of amazing how the texture and timbre of his fast moving playing matches the piano and drums. This was an absolutely new configuration for me, and I was grateful to the players for forcing me to find something new to play. The dialogue is astounding to hear several months later.

Hercules is part of the once-a-month releases of the suite Metamorphosis. Subscribers get access to the new track every month, as well as a physical CD at the end of the year. Join us to enjoy the music and help support a sustainable environment for creative music and art. Thank you.

Glad you are here reading what we have to offer at Greenleaf Music. I started this company in 2005 with my friend Michael Friedman. It has become in some sense a path forward in this changing landscape for independent artists. I’ve often reflected on how much closer I am to people who listen to my music than I ever was on a “major” label. It’s one of the aspects of this company that I enjoy.

This year we’ve been releasing monthly installments of my recording of Metamorphosis, with Wadada Leo Smith, Oliver Lake, Andrew Cyrille, Fred Frith, Susie Ibarra, Matt Mitchell, and Yasushi Nakamura. It’s a special project I recorded for subscribers and supporters of Greenleaf Music.

You can get this music, both in download form and on CD, by joining us now. I hope you will — it’s one of the ways I believe an independent company like ours can survive. So this is our new release, and you get it by joining us in our ongoing activities creating excellent musical content. Subscribing gives the newsletter, the podcast, and discounts on all the recordings and sheet music releases we do.

So if you like what you hear, please consider joining up this month as we prepare for a couple of excellent new CD releases.
