* Required Fields

The first recording of music by Bernadette Speach, a student of Morton Feldman, Nicolas Roussakis and Lejaren Hiller. Her music fuses many influences - the gentleness and spareseness of Feldman with the sound of modern jazz. This CD showcases all sides of her compositional talent, including the "cool" Telepathy: Poetry/Music Suite to texts by Thulani Davis (who wrote the libretto for Anthony Davis' opera on Malcolm X, X). Davis appears here to recite her own words against an ensemble of New York's leading jazz musicians. Composer supervised.

Bernadette Marie Speach

"At forty-one, Speach is one of the movers and shakers of the New York music world. She was a student of the late Morton Feldman; her music tends to be made up of soft repeated gestures and simple contrasts of sonorities. On the other hand, her rhythm is very unFeldmanish, precise in its pulsations, yet with a tendency to pause before changing directions. The performers are among New York's and Buffalo's best new music specialists. Good variety here within an introspective yet active personality we hadn't heard from before, and highly recommended." - Kyle Gann, Fanfare
