Fiona's Comments

Unclichéd, unscented, unsweetened, still refined. Icy as a cube, direct as a dagger, enigmatic and beguiling as crimson joy. There never was a bad Mr. Blake, ever poised for all distinct nuance, Christine Correa has a perfect nest to sing from. #ThouArtSick #ThouSwell

About the Album

The material on “Streaming” draws from diverse sources including selections from the American Songbook, classic jazz compositions, traditional Sephardic folk pieces, Brazilian songs and original compositions. What they have in common is that they all are part of the Third Stream repertoire and included in Blake’s groundbreaking concept of a system of artistic development. Blake states, “the type of introspection we are concerned with encourages you to examine things that are already a part of you – the style that is already your own, your feeling of heritage or nationality, a passion for a certain historical time period or geographical region, an intellectual bent and/or an emotional need to express. It could be your sense of fashion, or a deep commitment to a social/political movement. It can be as specific as one color you like to wear, and as broad as your sense of reality or view of life. What the critic within each of us tells us about our playing and composition is important. It is a start. But if we are to break through to the inner fires of creation, it will be the ear that will lead us to greater heat and finer focus.”
