O’s Notes: Pianist and composer Mara Rosenbloom forms a trio with bassist Rashaan Carter and improvisational vocalist Anaïs Maviel who also plays the Surdo Drum. Flyways: Murmuration is a rather interesting endeavor. Anaïs is quite poetic and speaks in dark tones, melodic tones, and in free form. The highlight of this recording is the supporting instrumentation including some of the vocalizations. It is music that is formed on solid improvisational jazz that resonates in the backdrop of the spoken work and singing. Among the best are “These Foolish Things”, “Bird Migration Theme” and “Dream of a Common Language”.
