This LP/DA release marks an important new contribution to the modern jazz tradition. Among other reevaluations of New York that occurred in the aftermath of 9-11 and Hurricane Sandy, Chroma Colossus: 13 Visions of the City presents an important imagining of our relation to the space, sound, energy, and resilience of New York. Beyond Waters, the quartet consists of Andrew Barker (drums), Chris McIntyre (trombone) and George Rush (bass/tuba). The album's song cycle is based on a text by Brooklyn-based author and MacArthur Fellow Colson Whitehead, who reads a passage from his book The Colossus of New York on the song 'Brooklyn Bridge.
