"Jazz drummer Frank Rosaly, who has recorded with Delmark artists Nicole Mitchell, Fast Citizens, Josh Berman, Jason Stein and Keefe Jackson, is now coming out with his debut album as leader. Cicada Music is an extension of drummer Rosaly's original soundtrack work from the documentary Scrappers, which follows the life of two Chicago recyclers scouring the alleys for scrap metal. Rosaly's music is a meditation on that struggle, the vast complexity of the urban environment and the beauty of human perseverance. Using some of the leading voices in Chicago's free music scene, these 10 tracks feature James Falzone, Jason Stein, Keefe Jackson,Jason Adasiewicz, Jason Roebke and Frank Rosaly."-Delmark
