16 collective improvisations

the musical evolution continues

The elements of music are melody, harmony, rhythm and form. When J.D. and the Sons of Rhythm create this music, live in the studio or on stage, they move through the elements of music freely. The skill, sensitivity and experience of each musician combines to create disc ten: Moving Through The Elements.

Multi-instrumentalist Singer puts it this way: "J.D. has assembled a highly talented, finely tuned group of musicians, any one of whom could be the cornerstone of a band. These players have reflexes - the ability to react to what they hear. We all play our own styles, but being ready for the unexpected is part of the nature of our playing. J.D.'s music allows us to explore this, and bring this active/reactive part of our experience to the forefront."

When you listen to Moving Through the Elements, you will hear the dichotomy of evolution and revolution. All good music, and in fact all good art, has a dynamic of tension and resolution. Part of the tension here is between what usually happens in music and what could happen. The resolution is the music itself - alive and ready to move you through the elements.
