AMBROSIA - Developing a band that appears as a large organism in which six instruments and interpreters of different instrument families merge into a single unit, was Peters' central idea for Ambrosia. He intensively worked on the harmonic concept and explored how individual roles can be redefined.
The view of the band's cast suggests, that Dierk Peters takes unconventional paths on Ambrosia. With his sextet, the award-winning vibraphonist and composer has developed a multifaceted musical language that unites song-like and interesting melodies, diverse harmonies and changing atmospheric shades.
Peters understands Ambrosia as a metaphor for a music that is inspiration and food for the human soul. Certainly a high standard, which he masters confidently.
Chicago sax luminary Greg Ward develops the dual-guitar frontline of his backing Rogue Parade quintet as an avatar for singular strength on this zesty collection of jazz-rock fusion songs. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 10, 2019
