Metamorphosis | Lyra
Lyra features our two string players, Yasushi Nakamura on bass and Fred Frith on Guitar. Traveling with Yasushi, I often remark on how the poor guy who offered us his bass must be cringing at the vigor with which Yasushi seems to destroy the instrument. This is his own bass, the sound full and resonant. Fred Frith of course brings an astonishingly varied set of sounds to the table here. Amazing to hear how many different tones he can get, and in so short an amount of time. Grateful to the venerable Fred for having made time for this recording session. Matt Mitchell and Andrew Cyrille punctuate the music with deft fluidity and rhythmic collusion. This track is seventh in the series. Thanks for listening and being a part of our community of artists at Greenleaf.
