songs in meantone
:: jormin nelson simonson
A respectful encounter between three experienced artists with entirely different and uniquely personal dialects, once again finding that sound and tonal vibrations unite into the nonverbal yet richly expressive language we call music.
The music - seemingly an eclectic crossover fusion of traditional folk music, contemporary jazz improvisation and old church music - is filled with the visions, dreams and hopes of each one of us. Along with a sense of wonder for what creative music can convey and signify - far beyond words. In a most organic way.
