spike mason :: multi-pulsed original jazz

This performance will debut a collection of new multi-pulsed jazz compositions. The synergy of the music is created by each of the instruments playing strong melodic ideas within their own pulse. The emphasis is on rhythm, melody, and improvisation.

"Two men were walking toward each other down a narrow path. As they passed, they asked the other where each was going. Their answers were the same, and it was at that moment that both of the men realised that people can be heading in different directions and yet going to the same place."
