Leaves Will SpeakI am delighted to present my first completely solo guitar recording, Leaves Will Speak. The circa 70 minute CD features original compositions and improvisations; the diverse collection is informed mainly by modern jazz, classical/new music and a number of world music streams I’ve very much embraced over the years, particularly those stemming from the Eastern-European, Middle-Eastern, Latin American and East Indian zones. I like to think of my composing and improvising as places where I often bring aspects of my various musical loves together into a coherent whole. The CD includes some refreshed versions of past works and those especially written for the project. There are also six completely improvised works. I won’t try to re-create them the night of the release! But interestingly enough, I’ve recently been drawn to excerpting themes from improvised moments I feel are especially worthy of revisiting, and building new improvisations upon them. Why not? That’s good discussion food. Ah, food… there will be some delicious snacks after the show, and a cash bar. Hope to see you at the Leaves Will Speak launch. I’ll play, we’ll nosh, drink and celebrate!
