Recording: The Imperative

Artist: The Imperative

Song: The Imperative X + XI [inspired by a Sun Ra poem]

Recorded at The Tranzac – Main Hall ("Somewhere There Creative Music Festival" – Show 5), February 22, 2015.

The Imperative - The Imperative X + XI

This project, from Somewhere There's Joe Sorbara, takes its inspiration from Sun Ra's poem "The Imperative", each of its eleven lines suggesting the tone of one part of the suite. Driven by Sorbara's percussion, the melodic framework comes from the tenor saxophones of Jay Hay and Karen Ng. Filled with radiant positive energy, the parts move from the sighing grief of quiet abstraction to the bam bamalam of joy and laughter.
