Stephen Gauci's Basso Continuo - Nididhyasana

The name of this ensemble points out the presence of two double basses (Michael Bisio, Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten) matched with the trumpet of Nate Wooley and the Gauci’s saxophone; the name of this work takes inspiration from a type of Hindu meditation.
Meditative is perhaps the most appropriate term to describe this release.
"Nididhyasana" fascinates with its abrupt rhythm variations, its whispered melodic tones, its absence of percussion that exalts the exchanges between wind instruments and strings.
Stephen Gauci’s creativity at maximum levels...
