Adam Rudolph’s Sextet “Moving Pictures,” an ensemble including Adam Rudolph: handrumset; Alexis Marcelo: Fender Rhodes, electric keyboards, Hammond B3; Damon Banks: electric bass; Hamid Drake: drumset, percussion; Kenny Wessel: electric guitar, electronics; and Ralph M. Jones: c flute, alto flute, bass clarinet, soprano and tenor saxophones, husli, bamboo flutes. Adam Rudolph’s Moving Pictures just released its first new album in over five years, “Glare of the Tiger,” a perfect example of creative music looking to the future while expressing the sound of now. Says Adam Rudolph, “It is my feeling that to honor tradition, one should look forward and not backward. The tradition is to sound like yourself and create a NEW music that reflects the NOW. To put it another way, Yusef Lateef often said to me, “Brother Adam, we are evolutionists.”
“Glare of the Tiger” by Adam Rudolph for Adam Rudolph’s Moving Pictures Sextet has been made possible with support from Chamber Music America’s 2016 New Jazz Works program funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
