Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Brian Blade (drums); Kurt Rosenwinkel (guitar); Myron Walden (bass clarinet, alto saxophone); Melvin Butler (tenor saxophone); Jon Cowherd (keyboards); Christ Thomas (upright bass).
Muze PNote Drummer Brian Blade made his reputation as a jazz musician, but he's also laid down the beat for iconic singer/songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan. Make no mistake however, SEASON OF CHANGES is most definitely a jazz album, albeit one where aspects of gospel, rock, country, folk, and blues are felt. SEASON consists of brainy soloing that is alternately torrid (sax guys Myron Walden and Melvin Butler) and melodious (especially from guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkle), thoughtful and creative ensemble playing, and compositions that never go quite where you expect but are beguiling anyway.

Professional Reviews

Down Beat (p.87)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[S]teeped in spiritual yearning. Blade interlaces his compositions with dramatic flair and soft sobriety, asserting himself on skins when needed but never overwhelming the group's tender balance of voices."

Mojo (Publisher)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Broadly evocative of '70s deep jazz and prog rock, both Blade's and pianist Jon Cowherd's originals tend toward a grand melancholy which gives the group an expansive quality."

Blender (Magazine)
- "The Fellowship interacts like a jazz group even as it purveys a monumental, suitelike sensibility, with complex forms, big narrative arcs and prevailing folk-rock melancholy."
