About the Album

"Windfall Light” is a track from How to Turn the Moon – the piano duo debut from Angelica Sanchez alongside creative colleague and mentor Marilyn Crispell, whom Sanchez first heard on a Fred Anderson record when she was just 16. Together, the artists allow their shared moments to expand Sanchez’s short-form written compositions and co-create spontaneous ones. The album is Sanchez’s first for Kris Davis’ label Pyroclastic Records. “Windfall Light” at times sounds scripted – even reminiscent of a written suite. Entirely improvised, the track serves as one of many extended moments of deep, active listening between Sanchez and Crispell that settles and expands and transforms. “There are certain parts where it almost felt like we went into set harmony,” says Sanchez, who contends she and Crispell continually allowed for shifting in context throughout the piece.
