descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This spontaneous, free-improvised session was recorded on a January afternoon after a leisurely, spontaneous lunch. Nothing was planned or discussed beforehand. First takes were the last ones, the ones you can find in this disc. Natural, home-brewed, organic music. The five musicians- Israeli soprano sax player and Kadima Collective member Ariel Shibolet and four Bay Area Californians- pianist Scott R. Rooney, trombone player Jen Baker, bass player Damon Smith and vocalist Aurora Josephson, found themselves speaking the same language. A language that suggests a common set of everyday gestures, based on past experiences and elaborated through an abstract system of personal sounds, always with an emphatic tone.

A language that stresses wide open minds and ears, constant cooperation and shared attitudes. A language of soft and patient moves, of split-second decisions, of gentle balances and dense flux, of elastic and careful gives and takes, of changing colors and dynamics, of laughter and serious expressions. A language that is very intense, but at the same time very fragile. A global language. It is a language of musical comrades and meeting minds, always ready to explore new routes. A language that is more than words, pure music."-Eyal Hareuveni

All track titles are from paintings by Mark Rothko.


Artist Biographies:

"Damon Smith studied double bass with Lisle Ellis and has had lessons with Bertram Turezky, Joëlle Leandré, John Lindberg, Mark Dresser and others. Damon's explorations into the sonic palette of the double bass have resulted in a personal, flexible improvisational language based in the American jazz avant-garde movement and European non-idiomatic free improvisation. Visual art, film and dance heavily influence his music, as evidenced by his CAMH performance of Ben Patterson's Variations for Double Bass, collaborations with director Werner Herzog on soundtracks for Grizzly Man and Encounters at the End of the World, and an early performance with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.

Damon has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including: Cecil Taylor, Marshall Allen (of Sun Ra's Arkestra), Henry Kaiser, Roscoe Mitchell, Michael Pisaro, Wadada Leo Smith, Marco Eneidi, Wolfgang Fuchs, Peter Brötzmann and Peter Kowald. After many years in the San Francisco Bay Area, and five great years in Houston, Texas working regularly with Alvin Fielder, Sandy Ewen, David Dove & Chris Cogburn, Damon will move to the Boston area in the fall of 2016. Damon has run Balance Point Acoustics record label since 2001, releasing music focusing on transatlantic collaborations between US and European musicians."
