Album 9 is done. It's another adventure for Grand Sticks and Kronos.

It features nine themes scattered throughout the album. You might have to listen a few times to catch all the deja vu. I think it gets more interesting as the variations morph and double back on one another.

Like the previous project, this one was written in coffee shops without an instrument. I don't have perfect pitch, so I use a metronome with 12 reference tones.

You can listen here. The score is posted here.

Again, I hear F.Z. in the writing (and in the first Stick solo). Maybe it's that writing w/out an instrument...Cool

I'm hearing some very positive echoes of Happy the Man, are you a fan of them, John?

No, Greg, but thanks for mentioning them! Just now checking them out on YT. How did I miss these guys?

As for FZ, the only album of his I've ever really listened to is Jazz from Hell. I guess the Synclavier left a lasting impression.

My main influences are Crimson, Bruford, Mahavishnu, and some ECM Records guys.

Probably because i grew up on Frank it reminds me of my favorite times of Waka/Jawaka & The Grand Wazoo also the band after that w/ Duke, Brock, Ruth, & Fowler bros. But yeah, i hear the best of Bruford's writing & Mahvishnu. As for Happy The Man, my prog buds were always opening my ears to WHAT ELSE I SHOULD BE LISTENING TO. I was a jazz snob @ Berklee and my friend put on K.C. "Fracture" and said "You're either gonna hate this or love it." I was playing upright & electric fretless Precision bass at the time and I immediately started breaking bass strings 'cause I wanted THAT SOUND...
