Overview

Paul Avgerinos - a key bass player in both the symphonic and jazz realms -- brings heaven to the lower notes in this intriguing album of space music. The ten movements of Sky of Grace approach the deeper register in a variety of ways, riding the warm and funky rhythms of the fretless bass or soaring with the whalelike undulations of the bass violin and cello, played by David Darling. Guitarist Brian Keene sits in on two cuts. On "Golden Threads," Keene's crystalline tones glisten over the sorrowful line of the bowed bass, and his warm melody plays over the talkative layers of whale song in "Dance of Life." The 11-minute title track begins with a fantasia of water sounds and birdcalls that seem to be encased and transported to a paradise both liquid and stellar; the sonic sparkles could be stars or the fizz of bubbles. Avgerinos takes a sophisticated path on this album. Sky of Grace offers an obvious spiritual message, but the music is anchored with an experiential depth that touches the soul.
