J.D. AND THE SONS OF
12 collective improvisations
SMOKE SHADOWS begins in the throes of a conversation about life. From the musical perspective, it is rhythms, notes and sounds. From the life perspective, it is heat, intensity, and expression in the depths.
The opening cut seems to let you in the door to a party already in progress. Soon, you are involved, following as more threads are added to the conversation. There are times when someone leads, and times when textures demand the focus.
If you follow the threads, they will lead you to the end of the first disc, and into the second. That is where the band kicks into a higher gear, spinning Ornette Coleman-like textures and Miles Davis-like jams.
By the end of disc 2, you are transformed.
Go beyond your limits. See moments captured, SMOKE SHADOWS frozen in time.
Smoke Shadows, 12 tracks of music.
