GLIDE is inspired by sincere emotions and meaningful people - it speaks, swings, and grooves. The songs reflect Afro-Brazilian, Jazz, Cuban, Funk and Eastern European compositional and stylistic influences. The music is diverse and yet it is thematically and stylistically unified. The result is a mix of highly organic and original work that is at the same time as dedicated to the groove as it is to the subtleties and delicateness of the music. This special group of musicians has had a chance to rehearse, perform, and build upon these tunes for a while. This has led to a creative collaboration where the band's playing reflects the goal of letting the meaning of the music to come through. The parts and improvisations do not try to showcase individual instruments but rather support the compositions, and thus contribute to the album as a deep and highly unique work of art.
