About the album
Following up on her acclaimed first cd for Tzadik Songs of Synastry and Solitude (2009), Jessica Pavone has created a beautiful and evocative song cycle that meditates on themes of destruction and rebuilding, migration, falsities and undeniable truths. Adding the heartfelt voice of Emily Manzo and long time associate Mary Halvorson to the Toomai String Quintet along with a dynamic rhythm section, the music is dramatic and lyrical. Pavone continues her imaginative exploration of new and exciting ways to present stories and song forms in chamber music contexts with this latest offering, which is an utter delight.
