New trio recording with Kidd Jordan (tenor sax), Hamid Drake (drums, percussion) & William Parker (bass) made at Systems Two Studios, Brooklyn, New York on September 23, 2005.
This trio session, recorded less than a month after Hurricane Katrina chased the 70-year-old saxophone master from his native New Orleans, is a testament to a life steeped in the deepest reservoirs of American music and fully committed to the moment. Completely improvised, the date brings Jordan back together with a pair of treasured colleagues, consummate players with whom he enjoys a rare connection: drummer Hamid Drake and bassist William Parker.
The delicately shifting sonic space of these pieces, awash in the sensory cues of Asian, African and Indian folk forms, evokes the exploratory tradition of 1960s innovators such as trumpeter Don Cherry - with whom both Drake and Parker were affiliated early in their careers.
