Eight original compositions are an instrumental collaboration between Mike Janzen (piano/organ), iconic bassist George Koller, and drummer sensation Larnell Lewis on the theme of time. Released 2014.
Mike says, “Growing up, I always had to wind up our creaky old metronome before practicing scales. It never occurred to me that the hypnotizing pendulum in front of me wasn’t just good for disciplined practice but also useful as a springboard into imagination. From the same rigid pulse could come both discipline and artistic abandon.”
Metronome explores how music interacts with time, both technically and philosophically. Music has the capacity to move the listener from the business of ‘every second counting’ to the sense of time passing without our awareness.
