O’s Notes: Percussionist, composer and arranger Julian Gerstin presents Music for the Exploration of Elusive Phenomena, a world jazz experience. The combined effect of drums, congas, and a myriad of percussion instruments leads to an exotic and natural expression of communication. They open with the afro-beat groove of “American History” featuring vocalist/narrator Wanda Houston. “After the Sleep of Lies” captures post-45th President chaos illustrated by vocalist Sarah LeMieux. We also enjoyed “Long Journey Home”. This COVID-collaboration was recorded by each musician at home then assembled by Gary Henry.
