In the tradition of toddler crayon scribbles on perfectly painted bedroom walls, multi-freshness composer Ben LaMar Gay expands on the teachings of Alabama star spirits and presents a collection of work involving sound, fabric, movement, rivers, shadows, Lagosian memories, light and listening.

'Certain Reveries' is a long-form composition by Gay, performed in duo with percussionist Tommaso Moretti. It was originally filmed by Chris Strong for EFG London Jazz Fest’s 2020 live-stream program. Gay presented the original Certain Reveries visual program for EFG LJF in three parts, with the live performance portion dissected by a mesmerizing short film (or “revery”) he conceptualized, choreographed, and directed, alone in his Chicago apartment, as a tribute to the late inventor/composer Eddie Harris. This new album release is the first time the unedited audio from the live performance portion of that program is made available.
