Drummer Alex Cline in a quintet with Peggy Lee, Myra Melford, Scott Walton and Jeff Gauthier, subtle music of timbre, texture and mood from an amazing group of players.

Cline, Alex

Cline, Alex: Continuation (Cryptogramophone)
Label: Cryptogramophone    
Released in: USA    

"Alex Cline's compositions and percussion work defy any strict notions of style, geographical region and form, though all come to play in his fluid conceptions. In his beautifully poetic liner notes for Continuation the drummer/percussionist/composer speaks of the simultaneities exisisting in each moment, from the center of which he dedicates his music to his mother and daughter, his progenitor and his continuation. Continuation is replete with subtle and breathtaking shifts in timbre, texture and mood that bespeak dance, meditation and the way in which polarites merge to form the infinite simplicity invoked in every moment of this stunning collection of music."-Cryptogramophone
