Rome Prize winner and New Orleans native Christopher Trapani's latest recording is in part inspired by the devastation of Hurricane Katrina on his home town. Trapani found himself reaching towards the music of the deep South, particularly Delta Blues, and exploring ways to incorporate stylistic elements into his own work. The other works of the album reflect a similarly voracious approach to style, drawing variously from aspects of Turkish music, Conlon Nancarrow, Bob Dylan, and Hank Williams, Trapani displays a deft hand at exploring a wide range of aesthetics while preserving a rigorous approach to integrating them into his work. Performers include Talea Ensemble, Longleash Trio, pianist Marilyn Nonken, and JACK Quartet. Christopher Trapani writes: “Home is the pull of a tonic chord. Home is the warm glow of consonance, radiating through a hissing layer of noise. Home is a worn and familiar sonority, the drone of loose strings. A loop back to the downbeat, a refrain falling into place after another meandering verse. Take a few steps away, then circle back. Home is a vector from confusion to clarity, a ship sailing into harbor, a phonograph needle spiraling inwards…”
