Creation is a huge part of making music, the chance to express a new idea and delight in its inception.
This release catalogs several new creations, all born from improvising as a group in front of a live audience at the Speak EZ Lounge. The combination of a deeply interacting group of musicians, a receptive audience, and an intimate space have yielded many new ideas and strengthened communal bonds.
Take a trip through groove-laden soundscapes with powerful, resonant voices bearing their souls for your listening experience. Bear witness to new sounds, rooted in jazz tradition and shaped for our generation.
