American guitarist David Gilmore has released a new album Numerology: Live at the Jazz Standard, where he explores the “mystic, divine and spiritual meaning of numbers”, the author explained.
Numerology is a live recording of a quintet concert which consists of alto saxophonist Miguel Zenon, pianist Luis Perdomo, double bassist Christian McBride and drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts. The concert was played in 2010 at New York’s Jazz Standard.
Performing and recording such a big music form outside the studio with minimum post production has been a big challenge. The album features musicians who played the concert with Gilmore, percussionist Mino Cinelu and vocalist Claudia Acuna, who, together with McBride and Watts has been part of the ensemble Gilmore recorded his 2006 album Unified Presence with.
David Gilmore started his career at the end of 80’s. Numerology is his third release as a leader. This artist is a highly esteemed studio guitarist who worked with such names like Don Byron, Wayne Shorter, Trilok Gurtu, Cassandra Wilson, Steve Coleman, Cindy Blackman, Dave Douglas and many more.
Gilmore is going on European tour at the beginning of November with his Art Of Ascension Trio with bassist Matt Garrison and drummer Gene Lake. They will start the tour in Sarajevo at the 17th edition of Jazz Fest. Tickets for their concert at the Youth Theatre on 08 November can already be booked here.
