Album Description

Composer/Saxophonist Frank Macchia and Composer/Drummer Brock Avery have created a brand new project that defies categorization. Taking improvised drum solos that Brock created, Frank has created stream of consciousness music compositions around the drums that create a colorful sonic experience. Featuring over 40 woodwinds and a bevy of brass, keyboards and string accompaniment this album is a massive sound collage of psychedelic proportions! A great 'deep-listening" adventure for the not-faint-of-heart!! Jazziz Magazine states "Frank Macchia is an inventive composer and arranger who deserves comparisons to Gil Evans and Pat Metheny." Three time Grammy nominated and National Endowment of the Arts recipient Macchia produced the project and is featured on saxes andwoodwinds, with guest artists Alex Iles on trombone, Stefanie Fife on cello and Eric Jensen on electric guitar.
