O’s Notes: New York based, Chinese saxophonist and composer Kevin Sun released The Sustain of Memory late in 2019. It is a lengthy combination of three suites over two discs comprising over 114 minutes of improvisational jazz. Sun is chasing his passions starting with “The Middle of Tensions” (I-VI), transitioning to “Circle Line (I-XII) and finally “The Rigors of Love” (I-III). The music slowly evolves from seemingly incomplete statements as Sun is able to eventually overcome the stress and resistance to focus on his passions and complete his phases. It is creative and increasingly embraceable as it progresses.
