about

Dolphy Formations. A new album by guitarist Aram Bajakian featuring the Vancouver trio Handmade Blade: Peggy Lee (Dave Douglas, Wayne Horvitz) on cello, JP Carter (Destroyer, Dan Magan) on trumpet and Bajakian on guitar.

Bajakian's composition is based on Synthetic Formations that were given to Dr. Yusef Lateef in 1961 by saxophonist Eric Dolphy, and included in his book, the Repository of Scales and Melodic Patterns.

Bajakian first discovered the Formations during his 4 years of study with Brother Yusef at the University of Massachusetts, but it was more than a decade later that he realized the composition. The results are haunting, enigmatic and deeply meditative, a musical homage to a master educator, mentor and friend, and all the selfless wisdom that he gave the world.

Preorder Dolphy Formations before the release date of Nov 15 and receive one of Aram Bajakian's other albums (There were flowers also in hell, Dálava, or Music Inspired by the Color of Pomegranates) for free in whatever format you order Dolphy Formations (electronic file or CD).
