Mark Whitecage:
Split Personality
SPLIT PERSONALITY coverLong considered a musicians musician, Mark Whitecage has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists including Eric Dolphy, Anthony Braxton, Paul Motian, Jeanne Lee and Dave Douglas, in a career spanning four decades.  His music reflects an approach to jazz composition and improvisation popular in the vibrant New York loft scene of the late 60s and early 70s, in which relatively simple written frameworks allow for extended improvisation.

This collaborative approach encourages maximum participation in the creation of the music with the minimum imposition of the composers will.  On this GM release the trio explores the outer limits within a more structured tune-based format.  They share a keen sense of dramatic flare, a collective feel for tension and release in performance, and the common goal of creating musical experiences that are rich in contrasting ensemble densities, dynamics, tempi and tone colors.
