Michael Bates’ Outside Source: Clockwise
Greenleaf is proud to announce the preorder of our newest release: Michael Bates’ Outside Sources, Clockwise.
Taking equal inspiration from jazz, western classical music, and lasting modern acts as disparate as the Bad Brains and Ornette Coleman, Clockwise offers a panoramic view of the engaging musical mind of Michael Bates, and will prove to be a watershed for enthusiasts of cutting-edge composition and improvisation. This dynamic collection of nine original works (the latest additions to an oeuvre bulging with more than 200 compositions) blurs the line between composition and improvisation and leaves the listener in a vertiginous space where tradition teeters at the knife-edge of a modern zest for experimentation and evolution. Dave Douglas on Michael Bates’ Outside Sources and Clockwise: “I whole-heartedly recommend taking special note in Outside Sources! Michael Bates is a fantastic bassist and an engaging composer.”
Released on the boot-heals of Donny McCaslin Trio’s, Recommended Tools, we are offering a special preorder price for both new titles. Buy both titles for $25 — a savings of over 15%. Click HERE to view this special offer.
