Description

Kings of Infinite Space on CD

His new CD Kings of Infinite Space has all kinds of beautiful things in it- things that show the range and depth of his creative vision. The first thing one notices about this music is the emotional range of the compositions. Each one is meticulously shaped and sculpted, much like the work of Thelonious Monk- not that the compositions sound like Monk-but that each song has a distinct personality and life history that is deeper than the notes that we are hearing. It is immediately telling stories that have a beginning, middle and end. From the liner notes by world renowned bassist and composer William Parker "Special guest "Juice", tenor saxophonist Alan Glover, took an extended solo, at first with the support of the trombones, but then over a loose cacophony from the other sections too. Glover played with Parker in the early 1970s when he ran a loft called the Firehouse. He preached over the orchestral anarchy in fluent post-Ayler style with more than a hint of Sonny Rollins, eschewing upper register screams for the middle ground. The horns dropped out to leave Leena Conquest singing "Rocket ship to the moon", giving a strong hint to the piece's title and dedicatee- "Gilmore's Hat", for the Sun Ra Arkestra mainstay, tenor saxophonist John Gilmore - Glover returned to duet in counterpoint to Conquest, before continuing his exposition." From the review by John Sharpe of the Vision Festival X day 6 June 19th 2005; All About Jazz website.
