Dave’s beautiful flute, tenor, and soprano sax lines soar over the rhythms played by young virtuosic percussionists throughout this beautifully haunting record. They provide a cultural context evoking the spirit of John Coltrane, particularly in the three opening pieces which were penned by Trane and arranged by Lieb. Along with the Coltrane cuts, the pieces “Danza” and the traditional “Tardes”, also featured are three “Ceremony” pieces Dave calls “Morning” “Afternoon” “Evening” which center around one theme adjusted for each of the chosen modes encased in odd meter bass and drum line.
