Composer, keyboardist, producer Wayne Horvitz’s new project celebrates American poet Richard Hugo (1923-1982), and is performed by a hugely talented septet combining his working ensembles Sweeter Than the Day and Gravitas Quartet. Hugo, a Seattle native, spent years rambling throughout the Northwest; that and his love of music (jazz in particular) inspired Horvitz’s interpretations of 11 Hugo poems, which are included in the booklet along with beautiful photos of places Hugo wrote about. Horvitz’s instrumental songs, which reflect Hugo’s love of nature as well as his frequent bouts of depression and loneliness, combine elements of the blues, jazz, folk and contemporary classical and feature deeply felt improvisations by the whole band. Audiophile production enhances the impact.

‘Horvitz’s music remains multifaceted and transportable, from the hinterlands of avant classical to down-home folksy charm, from small group getups to large-ensemble blowouts…there’s nobody else out there I hear even attempting to cover some kind of similar range, and do it so convincingly.’ (John Ephland, AllAboutJazz)

‘Horvitz already has lovely…the ability to distill music, be it classical, jazz, film, or free, down to the essence of melody and harmony.’
