Pi Recordings is proud to release Tactiles, the second album by Liberty Ellman, one of
New York's most imaginative and unorthodox guitarist/composers. Tactiles follows
up the critically acclaimed Orthodoxy, which Ellman released in 1998 on his own Red
Giant label. Featuring Mark Shim on tenor saxophone, Stephan Crump on bass, and
Eric Harland on drums, Tactiles documents sounds and concepts that have been
gestating since Ellman returned to his native New York from the Bay Area in 1998.
Tactiles is Ellman's second appearance on Seth Rosner's innovative Pi label - the first
being Up Popped the Two Lips by Henry Threadgill's acoustic band ZOOID
