I waited a year for the release of this album after having the privilege of performing it with the San Francisco Symphony Chorus. I have to admit that I was pleasantly shocked hearing it as a whole. I think it quite beautiful. In particular, the way that Mr. Tate has almost engineered the ebb and flow of the instruments and the intertwining with the voices of the chorus. If you close your eyes, you can almost imagine yourself in the midst of a dance ceremony on sacred native American ground. The beating of your heart almost seems to synchronize itself with the beating of the drums and your face tingles as the chorus glides effortlessly from near silence to a breath taking full bore. The soulful flute, the 'star' of the composition will transport you to another dimension. Absolutely amazing! Kudos Mr. Tate!

Unlike Brazil's Heitor Villa-Lobos and Mexico's Carlos Chávez, the incorporation of Native American melodies and rhythms is rare in American classical music. Native American instrumentation is typically limited to flute, drum, and rattle, and in this album two compositions by Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate, a member of the Chickasaw Nation and graduate of Northwestern University and Cleveland Institute of Music, features the orchestral flute in a four movement concerto and in a two-movement oratorio for flute, orchestra, and chorus. Tate's music is atmospheric, conjuring through the dark mists of history the culture of the Chicasaw, whose homeland was Mississippi before forced removal in the 1830s to Indian Territory, now Oklahoma. The concerto, Tracing Mississippi, is built around songs and rhythms of the Chickasaw (Garfish Dance and the hymn Worth of the Soul), Commanche, and other Southwest indigenous people. Native drums are included in the orchestra. No musical cliché is found within these complex, thoughtful compositions. Iholba', meaning The Vision, is the title of the choral work and its second movement; Halbina', The Gift, is the opening. The text, original poetry by Tate, is in the Chickasaw language. (Translations in English are included in the package notes.) The chorus at times whispers, adding to the feeling of spirits and remembrances. Orchestral colors complement the difficult flute solos, performed expertly by Christine Bailey Davis of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra in the concerto and by Thomas Robertello, who had been a member or guest of many orchestras and at the time was on the faculty of Indiana University, in the choral piece. The San Francisco Symphony and Symphony Chorus conducted by Edwin Outwater help make this album an exemplar of how serious contemporary classical music can be scored with Native American elements.

This album of the music of Jerod Impichaachaaha Tate is great. I don't often rave about classical music but Tate's scores are impressive and shows the depth of his ability to create new classical music. Works By Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate

I am impressed how he is able to meld American Indian themes into the classical world with what seems like endless energy. All of this ending up in a wonderful bit of music.

Thanks also to the San Francisco Symphony and Chorus for having the courage and the wisdom of to record new classical music from an American Indian composer with such talent.

It is time we hear from Native American composers. We have for too long been denied the ability to hear from such great talent with great, new music.

The Chickasaw and Choctaw languages are my linguistic preoccupation at the moment. Whilst searching for information about the Chickasaw language and culture recently, I found on the Chickasaw Nation's website a page dedicated to Jerod Impichchaachaaha Tate and his career as a composer. Needless to say, his people are incredibly proud of him. There was a link to his own website, and information about this recording and how to buy it online. It wasn't from Amazon, unfortunately, but that was how I found it. The music sounded intriguing, especially since one of the works was a choral piece in the Chickasaw language (Chikashanompa). Knowing nothing about Jerod Tate- indeed, never having heard of him before that day- I proceeded to order the recording from the record company, Thunderbird, sight unseen (and content unheard!).
Am I glad I did! The performance is stellar- I don't know the conductor or either of the two flautists, but I'm impressed. It is impressive, magnificent music, very powerful, a wonderful melding of Western Art-Music and traditional Native-American sounds (and not just of the Chickasaw; Jerod Tate says in his liner notes that a friend of his who is Comanche contributed a tune to the project).
If you are into ethnic music (especially Native-American), or if you like new music, this recording is a must-hear.
(The title of my review, "Chukma!", is the Chickasaw word for "Good!" Chikashanompa ithana sabanna!)
