Thanks to all of you who completed our recent survey. It is great to know you better.
Sharing A Small Planet was different from most of the pieces in the UPLIFT series. It’s different in that I had a very specific groove in mind, and I wanted to hear us develop this idea of a form over this groove within the span of a 5 minute improvised piece. After the first take, I wasn’t sure we had made it. Often when you are in the middle of a piece — playing — it is difficult to judge the result. On listening back months later, I fell in love with both tracks. The second take (track 9 of this album) is significantly different. The band was surprised I called for a second take, and so they went some very different places.
As a subscriber, you get access to both tracks, so you can judge for yourself the difference between these two takes. Peace to you, and may peace overwhelm the whole world.
