On Leaves Of Grass

Zorn, John: On Leaves Of Grass (Tzadik)

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Following up on the success of 2013's "Dreamachines", the third release by the brilliant quartet Nova Express is inspired by and dedicated to American poetic genius and father of free verse Walt Whitman. Combining the hypnotic swirls of minimalism, the free intensity of improvisation and a soaring lyricism, "On Leaves of Grass" is an exhilarating addition to Zorn's growing collection of mystical transcendental works. An emotional and virtuosic outing from this Downtown supergroup performing music that speaks to the eternal."-Tzadik
