Collaborations are unique to their combinations, producing totally original and innovative ideas with the addition of a single factor. In this case, legendary musicians and 577 mainstays join together in this unique arrangement for the first time, allowing for yet another reinvention. Saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Carter, pianist Leo Genovese, bassist William Parker (also playing Gralla and Shakuhachi on this album), and drummer and vocalist Francisco Mela, unite for another improvisational project—one that invokes classic, elegant jazz, juxtaposing their different instruments with experimental arrangement. Shine Hear, Vol. 1, their latest avant-garde album is testament to their mastery and ease. The album and tracks titles are inspired by a poem Carter wrote about New York’s interminable motion, the city they all call home.
