The American Tribal Ensemble''s adventures in sonic poetry
continue in this new effort with poems by Sarah James. The Ensemble''s dramatic, energetic and no holds barred approach to improvising underscores the dynamic spoken word of Sarah James and Pam Purvis narrations. Moving between the worlds of poetry and music with grace, wit, style and innovation,
this concept is a fantastic sojurn into musical particle
physics! This incarnation of the ensemble features the trumpet/vocals of Herb Robertson, the vocals/narration of Pam Purvis and the woodwinds of Bob Ackerman. A voice/bass duo featuring the great bassist Wilber Morris and Sarah James on her piece "i am", is nine minutes of creative fire, sypatico exchanges and exploration into the mysteries of personal metaphor. Jim Yanda on guitar and Chris Lough on bass, add an electric dimension to the very accoutic feeling of this recording. Herb Fisher and Tom Sayek on drums and percussion, two New Jersey born members of this improvising community deliver the pulse of this music with
drive and humor. Perhaps the most unusual addition to the concept of this band is Ms. James''s poem, "Planet Of Abundance", performed here with the Slovak Orchestra. Narrated by Ms. Purvis, this piece was performed and recorded in the Czech Republic in the spring of 2004,under the direction of Bob Ackerman, the composer and conductor.
Ms. Purvis, a native of Louisana, performs with poise, direction and an eloquent clarity and Mr. Ackerman''s composition deftly weaves the poetic message with subtle
shadings of plaintive intent. This is the third release for The American Tribal Ensemble and their most ambitious to date. Eclectic, daring, mystical, hopeful and ......crash
and burn into the stars!!!!!!!!
