Drummer Tyshawn Sorey is widely considered to be among the most important young artists at the intersection between composed and improvised music. Sorey doesn't so much blur the line between the conventional roles of the ensemble and jazz trio, as he does allow their individual voices tell two sides of the same story. The lyrical intricacies are frequently intermingling their attributes as living entities would do in such close proximity. There is a spontaneity and natural flow in the mix of components that make up the album and the belief in the complexity and scope of Sorey's vision.

The Inner Spectrum of Variables is an extended composition that draws from Sorey's wide-ranging musical influences, including the work of improviser-composers Butch Morris, Harold Budd, and Anthony Braxton, as well as Ethiopian modal jazz, klezmer, and Western art music traditions. Structurally it involves multiple harmonic, formal, rhythmic, and modal vocabularies all supported by an exploratory framework. The result is a far reaching and intensely beautiful work that daringly blurs the boundaries between composition and improvisation.

It is, truly, the vision of a modern master
