HUMAN SPIRIT: DIALOGUE: LIVE AT THE EARSHOT JAZZ FESTIVAL

ORIGIN RECORDS (82615)

With a combined 14 albums as leaders, and appearing on dozens more as sidemen, Thomas Marriott, Mark Taylor and Matt Jorgensen have put a strong stamp on the sound of modern jazz that has come out of Seattle and Origin Records over the last decade. Dialogue, their first release under the group name Human Spirit, features 8 original compositions recorded during a sold-out, two-night run at Tula’s Jazz Club in Seattle during the 2011 Earshot Jazz Festival. Pushing the direction of the band further forward are special guests and frequent collaborators, pianist Orrin Evans and bassist Essiet Essiet.
