Season of Changes is a warm, intense and emotional experience. Brian Blade's Fellowship band brings together instrumentalists from diverse musical backgrounds and allows them room to craft an album of rich, complexity. This musical experience transcends simple labels and expects that listeners will concentrate on the vivid and varied emotions expressed by the talented players. You'll hear so many distinctive flavors... at times it's great jazz, other times the power and adrenaline rush of great rock pulses through your brain. On the next track, you'll find nuances of European folk music, African flavors and, even, medieval sounding chord changes. This is the "real deal" for fans of soulful, inspiring instrumental music. All of the musicians are outstanding, and Brian Blade shows admirable restraint and musicality with his drumming, Everything he plays contributes to each composition without a trace of the "drumcentric" bias found on projects fronted by some other guys who sit behind the kit. Finally, special recognition must be given to guitarist, Kurt Rosenwinkel, for his innovative playing and flawless technical skills.
Season of Changes is a great recording that you'll keep coming back over and over, again.

"Season of Changes" is an outstanding new album, not "jazz" as so carefully maintained by the curators of tradition, but nevertheless, majestic improvisational music by great jazz musicians. Kurt Rosenwinkel's soaring guitar is as close to Clapton or Santana as it is far from Wes. One tune, "Most Precious One," flashed me back to the Beatles' "White Album" with Blade's spare, hypnotic drumming. McCoy Tyner's utterly sublime and transcendent recordings of the 70's are not "jazz," either; it is modal music with very obvious African influences. But these are simply reference points from my era. Brian Blade and his group, with its textured ensemble work and impassioned blowing, have reached similar heights - very different from McCoy's work but still pulsing, urgent, the primal "cry" of horn or guitar recalling the mighty Coltrane's holy project to break out of the skin of this world, to find the essential source of all being through music. Not jazz, perhaps, but through this work, jazz lives, after all.
