Elisha, Ehran / Kindred Spirit
Kindred Spirts: Quintets [2 CDs]
Label: OutNow Recordings
Released in: USA
"Kindred Spirit is Ehran Elisha's third release for OutNow Recordings. In this outing Elisha presents two unique quintets interpreting two of his extended compositions: Kindred Soul and Spirit Suite. The musicians in each quintet lend Elisha's work their own individual voice and improvisational vision while the compositions themselves act as perfect frameworks enhancing the collective sound of each quintet. Hence, the pieces feature each musician's individual sound while concurrently presenting a specific unified timbre.
Composer-Improviser-Percussionist Ehran Elisha has been leading ensembles in his native New York for nearly three decades. On Kindred Spirit, his new double album, Elisha presents quintet compositions for two separate ensembles recorded within one evening at IBeam, Brooklyn in the spring of 2013.
"Spirit Suite", a four-part work, features a one-off meeting between Elisha, Michael Attias, Yoni Kretzmer, Rick Parker and Sean Conly . "Kindred Soul" is a three part suite played by longtime musical partners of Elisha, including his father Haim Elisha, Sam Bardfeld, Dave Phillips, and most poignantly in what turned out to be the fifth and final formal recording with Ehran after 20 years of music and friendship between them, the greatly missed master musician Roy Campbell Jr., to who's memory the entire album is dedicated."-OutNow Recordings
