merge poetry music
Merge, a groundbreaking new spoken word & jazz CD, was released on October 13, 2006. The creators are:
Cassandra CLEGHORN | Erik LAWRENCE
Rene HART | Allison MILLER
Recorded & mixed at Levon Helm Studios, Woodstock, NY
Moving beyond conventional roles, the members of this ensemble take part in the true jazz tradition in which each player assumes equal responsibility as supporter and soloist: the drummer plays a melody from a Bach cello suite, the bassist taps on his instrument like a drum, the poet creates an underlying pulse for the saxophonist’s vocal line.
