Thanks to you the listener and special thanks to the musicians. A word about Kossan: A practicing Buddhist monk, I met him while he was chanting in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art a few years ago. He was game for trying improvisation and proved to be a natural. The centerpiece of this recording is “FROM”, which is an orchestral arrangement designed to create improvised episodes of shifting instrumental combinations. The other pieces are all free improvisations. I hope you enjoy. — Ken Silverman NYC, 2011
