Click the play button to listen

Leo Sidran and Kat Edmonson's latest single introduce the Art of Conversation in jazz. Irene Schweizer & Hamid Drake, and Javier Santiago & Melanie Charles continue it as a dialogue; Keith Brown and Garage a Trois as a trialougue; Dina Ramirez, Roberto Negro, Erik Fratzke as a quadralogue; Jacques Schwarz-Bart, Makram Aboul Hosn, Ofentse Moses Sebula and Little Rosies Kindergarten as a much larger exchange. But, in all cases, it's the result of deep listening and openness that gives rise to memorable music.

Happy listening!
