About "Where Rivers Meet [album]"

Recorded in the heart of Edinburgh, 12th Century St. Giles Cathedral provides the unique canvas for a new collaboration between the SNJO and artist Maria Rud.

“This concert is all about expression, the deepest emotion of our inner voice. To reach that space where we summon heart and spirit, the soloists must bear their souls – that was the challenge and the achievement of much of the best of the free jazz of the 1960s and beyond. And that’s what we’re after here.” — Tommy Smith
