Title:

Continuation

Artist(s):

Alex Cline




Alex Cline's compositions and percussion work defy any strict notions of style, geographical region and form, though all come to play in his fluid conceptions. In his beautifully poetic liner notes for "Continuation" the drummer/percussionist/composer speaks of the simultaneities exisisting in each moment, from the center of which he dedicates his music to his mother and daughter, his progenitor and his continuation. Featuring Jeff Gauthier (violin), Scott Walton (bass), Peggy Lee (cello), and Myra Melford (piano/harmonium), "Continuation" is replete with subtle and breathtaking shifts in timbre, texture and mood that bespeak dance, meditation and the way in which polarites merge to form the infinite simplicity invoked in every moment of this stunning collection of music.
