I just got through listening to Symmetria and I have to say it is downright inspiring. This is no idle flattery or sycophantic complement, just ernest recognition by a fellow musician. It is completely captivating and sounds for lack of a better descriptor, “complete”. Those overtones will haunt my sleep tonight.
I love the textures and movement you have created, but most of all, I love how well crafted it is as an elegant “finished” composition. I have honestly not been this impressed with a piece of music since I heard “ethnic stew and brew” by the Roy Campbell pyramid Trio. (With William Parker and Hamid Drake laying it down). Your playing actually bears a striking resemblance to Parker’s if you don’t mind my saying, but with its own unique spice.
I am going to make a point of flying out to see one of your shows in person. Bravo!
To all the rest of you aficionados , this is likely not news, but if by some shortsight you have not already heard this masterpiece, change your plans for the evening and sit down with a good pair of headphones or monitors. Get ready to be blown away. (www.steveuccello.com)
