Riding the Moment

On the new recording Riding the Moment, Zeitlin returns to spontaneous composing utilizing electronic instruments along with the acoustic piano.

In Crossing The Busy Stree

J.B. Floyd / Thomas Buckner / George Marsh

In Crossing the Busy Street

Here’s the perfect example of how creativity can be ageless, transcending musical genres and not necessarily using an obscure and experimental language. This recording highlights the three main strands of Floyd’s career: pianist, composer, improvisor. He composed In Crossing the Busy Street for baritone Thomas Buckner (a frequent collaborator of his) and piano, using a poem by Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore. The musical material from this twenty-two minute song cycle then became the basis for further exploration as material for improvisations. Floyd then worked with drummer George Marsh (another long-time collaborator) on what became Improvisations on In Crossing the Busy Street.

BLUE-FLAME

The Loading Zone

Blue Flame

Hear what these 60’s Bay Area favorites sounded like then and now. Front-burner psychedelic funk-rock contrasted with older, wiser ElderFunk. Sweet.
