Out of the blue 'Creation: The Joy Of Being' the opener of Reciprocity drops. The habitually tasteful Biophilia label this coming May are releasing the full album from María Grand, each instrumentalist on the release contributing voice. The tenor saxophonist is with relative unknowns double bassist Kanoa Mendenhall and drummer Savannah Harris. The music was written and recorded by Grand early last year when the artist was pregnant with her son, Ayní. There are 13 tracks in all, seven of which form a 'Creation' theme, two are 'Fundamentals'. The start is a vocalised statement of intent like a mantra. When the trio kick in instrumentally there is so much space in the music it is startling. Checking old stories back in 2018, Grand's Magdalena hit the spot. The next year heard in a different context the Swiss improviser cropped up significantly inside Code Girl. Grand is an improviser superstar in the making it seems once more, a weaver of dreams. Listen, even as these morsels for now only go, that's the listening proof how-and-the-why, to show. SG
