A lot of my music grows out of improvisation. When improvising, I often return to certain patterns and structures—a scale, a mood, a groove, or an emotion. The pieces on Marimbagram are crystallized improvisational ideas. The musical structures have been condensed into short pieces with clear forms. Each piece is completely improvised, recorded in a single take from beginning to end. The exception is the Argentinian tango-inspired ”Crossroads,” which began as an improvisation, but quickly grew into a more substantial piece combining fixed melodies and harmonies with sections of improvisation.
