About the Album

She Let Go is a song composed by saxophonist Gabriel Genest with lyrics by Safire Rose. About the process of creating that song, Genest says: "'She Let Go’ is a poem I discovered during a meditation retreat at the Insight Meditation Society. When you meditate intensively for days on, a particular availability and openness can sometimes set in. Safire Rose’s poem ‘She Let Go’ is a wonderful illustration of this state. My hope is that this piece will also enable us all to touch this state, even if only lightly. “The piece begins as a duet with piano and voice. Yannick Anctil is an outstanding accompanist, and it was a privilege to see him and Jeanne Laforest take creative risks and throw themselves into the void like this when recording this duet section. Each take was unique and deeply alive.”
