about

This is an exploration of rhythm and spiritual warrior survival. I have been longing to record a live percussion, improvisation/chant CD for a while, and I am so happy to have had this opportunity to record with my dear brothers - who happen to be masterful percussionists. "Sever the Ties features the beautiful vocals of Haale & Gelan Lambert jr.

Joshua Geisler and I talked about creating some songs for Yoga that were prayerful but non denominational, we met one afternoon at his home, and some of these songs were born. We brought a few ideas to Ken Rich's Grand Street Recording studio in Brooklyn and went for it in a day.

*Hamid Drake and William Parker have been musical soul mates for over two decades. To share this space with them goes up there as one of my biggest honors to date.

I hope you enjoy the sentiment.

Peace, love and music,

Morley
