14 collective improvisations

improvised world-jazz fusion

Colors of Tyme brings fourteen new tracks to the table, all from the later sessions at Midtown. The music mixes Funk and World-Beat grooves, with flavors of Latin, Afro-Caribean, Samba, Soka, and the occassional odd-time rhythm pattern.

The later sessions included a cast of regulars. All of these musicians are veterans of this project, and play together in all measure of situations. Every style of music is represented in these bands, which include Cat's A Bear, Ahimsa Beat Potato Battery, One World Tribe, 3bop, Starfish, Weirdo Theater, Valerie Horton Brown Project, and any number of side-projects, free-lance gigs, and recordings.

All this is to say that the music gels for a reason. There is experience of the jam, of each other, and of music itself. This familiarity enhances the process of spontaneous creation, allowing players to guage the direction the music is taking and add their input in a musical way.

In short, it grooves as it moves.
