About the album

Nine poems and phrases are the heart of this wide-ranging project by composer/pianist Kyle Aho for his Missouri-based jazz quintet, along with vocalist Christin Bohrisch. Selecting poetry and text that underscore the artist’s struggle for transcendence through creativity, Aho's search over the last decade revealed works from ancient voices such as Mayadeviyaka and Symeon, poems from Walt Whitman and Franz Kafka, and three works by his own mother, Margaret Aho. The longing resonating from the texts connected with Aho, much as the music of John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, and Keith Jarrett. With short solo piano and instrumental pieces creating a sense of balance, flow, and discovery, the poems set to Aho's compositions express a yearning for communion and spirituality, for an existence beyond the physical.
Neun Gedichte und Phrasen bilden das Herzstück dieses weitreichenden Projekts des Komponisten/Pianisten Kyle Aho für sein Jazzquintett aus Missouri und die Sängerin Christin Bohrisch. Bei der Auswahl von Gedichten und Texten, die das Streben des Künstlers nach Transzendenz durch Kreativität unterstreichen, stieß Aho bei seiner Suche in den letzten zehn Jahren auf Werke antiker Stimmen wie Mayadeviyaka und Symeon, auf Gedichte von Walt Whitman und Franz Kafka sowie auf drei Werke seiner eigenen Mutter, Margaret Aho. Die Sehnsucht, die in den Texten mitschwingt, verbindet sich mit Aho ebenso wie die Musik von John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter und Keith Jarrett. Mit kurzen Soloklavier- und Instrumentalstücken, die ein Gefühl der Ausgewogenheit, des Flusses und der Entdeckung vermitteln, drücken die Gedichte, die Aho komponiert hat, eine Sehnsucht nach Gemeinschaft und Spiritualität aus, nach einer Existenz jenseits des Physischen.
