The Richard Sussman Quintet

Continuum – a continuous non-spatial whole or extent or succession in which no part or portion is distinct or distinguishable from adjacent parts – the continuum of experience in which events pass from the future through the present to the past. Although circumstances and events may appear to change dramatically over time, there is always a thread running through it all, establishing a continuity of consciousness and spirit.

“Continuum” – the composition and recording – represents the integration and coalescence of a wide variety of musical and stylistic experiences spanning several decades, illustrating the continuity or “Continuum” through many seemingly disparate elements of my musical journey. To provide continuity for this project, I reassembled the band from “Free Fall” (with the exception of Tom Harrell and Larry Schneider), my first studio recording as a leader, recorded in 1978.

I feel incredibly privileged to have once again been able to surround myself with some of the most talented and creative musicians on the planet: Jerry Bergonzi, Mike Richmond, and Jeff Williams. The incredible Randy Brecker joins us on trumpet and flugel horn. And guitar wizard Mike Stern honors us with a special guest appearance on one tune.

I feel equally privileged and excited to be joined for this performance by the great Duane Eubanks, Tim Ries, Mike Richmond, and Jeff Williams.
