Byron Wallen's "As Is"

Featuring: Byron Wallen - Trumpet, Dave Okumu - Guitar, Al Cherry - Guitar, Larry Bartley - Bass, Tom Skinner - Drums

'AS IS' takes its reference points from diverse sources such as Miles Davis, Messiaen and East African funk. The music was written in response to the romance of life and an ecstatic way of relating to Divinity.

The objective was to create a sound that was open and spacious with simple themes that resonate at a subconscious level. The melodies are simple and probing. The rhythms are intricate but immediate. The harmonies are searching but familiar. The emotions and dilemmas we experience each day on our everyday journeys are the inspiration for the music, these are our rites of passage.
The main focus in the band is on the interaction of the musicians, developing a spiraling dialogue that is at once spontaneous and vital. This is music to meditate to, dance with and rejoice about.
