I Am A Man / Ron Miles, Brian Blade, Bill Frisell
Morgan, Thomas; Blade, Brian; Miles, Ron; Frisell, Bill; Moran, Jason
I Am A Man, Ron Miles’s newest recording with Bill Frisell and Brian Blade, expands the trio to a quintet with the addition of pianist Jason Moran and bassist Thomas Morgan. The sublime interplay that distinguished the Circuit Rider trio recordings Quiver (2012) and Circuit Rider (2014), reaches new levels of inspired musical communication. Ron Miles ‘s lyrical and complex compositions provide the perfect framework for five masters who blur the boundaries of conventional soloing and accompanying in a constant ebb and flow marked by brilliant harmonizing and strokes of individual genius.
