October 13, 2008: Album of the Day Vol. 034: Interplay - 2008 - Apology To The Atonists/Tritone Suite



From Wayside Music:

"A contemporary ensemble, but one with a righteous feel that takes us right back to the best years of 70s spiritual jazz -- a freely creative combo who mix bits of guitar and electronics with warmer sounds on flutes, saxes, and percussion! There's a bit of vocal recitation on the set, but the main focus is instrumental -- and in a way, the group's approach almost mixes an earlier AACM spirit with downtown experimentalism -- but always in a blend that leans towards the soulfulness of the former."

Elliott Levin - Poetry, Flutes, Saxes
Rick Iannacone - Guitars, Electronics
Keno Speller - Flute, Vocals, Percussion
Ron Howerton - Cuica, Percussion
Ed Watkins - Percussion
