by Michael Lowenstern

The evolution of Lowenstern's "transparent-tecnnology" jazz, but this time the technology is, well, less transparent. This groove-rich, jazz-funk CD is less restrained, and full of unbelievable bass clarinet playing, lush textures and (in)human percussion

Album Notes
Fade. It's a nostalgia album.

It’s about personal memories of my first weekend in Brooklyn, of the birth of my daughter, of meeting my wife, of writing music in the summer of 1991 with my best friend, of my father’s advice, of an overnight drive from Illinois to St. Louis to play a show, of living in Holland – and then leaving. And, it’s about how I deal with these memories by stuffing them in their own shoebox under my bed, and then taking them out to look at and enjoy every so often.

It’s electronica the way I’ve always wanted to hear it: with live instruments blowing over the changes. It’s jazz the way I’ve always wanted to play it: with electronics weaving their way through the acoustic instruments. It’s classical music the way some people are afraid it’s going: trained musicians leaving “the fold” to work out their muse elsewhere.

This CD is my fourth in 11 years, and in many ways the one I’ve always wanted to make, with my love for pop culture on its sleeve. And, in many ways, it’s an evolution of my last disc “Ten Children,” incorporating melody and simple form as its foundation.

I hope you like it. Thanks for listening.

Stephen Davis

At once funky with a deep beat and at the same time pleasingly old school with a smooth - and rare - clarinet, this album is the kind which you just can't stop listening to. Has been on repeat since I bought it.
