On December 11th and 12th 2009 ARS NOVA in Philadelphia put together 2 nights of my music in 4 different settings.
On the second night I performed some new music(at the time )with a septet of some of my favorite musicians many of whom were playing together for the first time.
Recently I discovered that Joe Branciforte had recorded the evening and had saved it all this time.
I barely remember these tunes, some of which have been re-worked for other ensembles…actually I hardly remember anything from 2009.
I’m not sure I’ve done anything quite like this and as this was the only time this group performed I feel very fortunate to be able to make it available on 9donkeys.
Really a memorable night for me and many thanks to these incredible musicians and of course Joe and David Torn for making it sound so good.
