Dresser, Mark: Sonic Brotherhood: DTFP by Five - Israel 2009 (Kadima)
Label: Kadima    
Released in: Israel    

"It was one of the most beautiful projects in which I have ever been involved, requiring nine months of daily preparation on artistic, administrative and technical levels. It was an extremely complex event, requiring tremendous effort, will and faith to overcome the myriad of technical, social, political, and financial stumbling blocks that kept presenting themselves. Prior to the main telematic event was a series of four concerts, two of them with the DTFP by 5 bass ensemble documented on this recording. The over-riding feeling of camaraderie, support and love that permeated those events was truly remarkable and unforgettable. -Mark Dresser
