Justice for the Earth
Seeds....is the name of a new jazz quartet featuring Chuck Marohnic, piano, Fred Forney, trumpet and flugelhorn, Dwight Kilian, bass and Dom Moio, drums. The inspiration for the name Seeds.... comes from a wish that through this music the listener will become sensitized to the world in which we live. It is a call to honor God's creation, the Earth. All the compositions are original from the group and reflect the theme. This new music breathes with organically developmental improvisation on beautiful and interesting compositions with a sense of introspection, reflection and adventure. Who are we?
