about

The initial spark for the music of Empyrean Atlas began one fine summer evening at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn, listening to the legendary musician Thomas Mapfumo wind his way through one genius piece of music after another, accompanied by a band with one of the greatest feels ever heard. When you experience something that profoundly good, it’s hard to not try and respond. Finding similar inspirations in the music of Steve Coleman and Steve Reich (collectively known as the Steve’s), the seed that would become Empyrean Atlas was planted.

The album was recorded over the course of several sessions in the Hudson Valley and Brooklyn, NY.

David Crowell | alto saxophone + mbira
