Regular price $39.99 CAD
Regular price Sale price $39.99 CAD
3 CD Box - US Import - on Aum Fidelity

It is comprised of four distinct long-form works:
> A commissioned piece for standing new music ensemble, Kitchen House Blend
> A chamber-jazz song series for voice / sax / piano / bass
> Another long-form multi-sectional composition created specifically for a particularly global assemblage in Universal Tonality mode
> William Parker’s first score to be performed by a symphony orchestra (although not the first that he'd written for same)

The four works are linked by a focus on and greater adherence to William Parker’s composition; the depth and breadth of the resultant performances thereof is astonishing.
