Image: 1611267 The Heart of Infnite Change is Natasha Agrama’s forthcoming debut
full-length album, joining the west coast jazz imprint World Galaxy for
its release across vinyl, cassette, CD, and digital platforms September
8, 2017. Features include legends both foundational and new, drawing
together Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner, Stanley Clarke, George Duke,
Tony Austin, Vinnie Colaiuta, Mitchell Long, Ruslan Sirota, Ronald
Bruner Jr., Doug Webb, and the last recordings of the late and great
Austin Peralta.
The Heart of Infnite Change is a representation of roads defning
Agrama’s artistic connection to the LA music world and beyond, diving
into compositions by Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, Joe Henderson,
and Bilal. As a nod to the jazz tradition, interpretation and revitalization
are at the forefront of her debut. There is a deeply touching story weaving
its way around The Heart of Infnite Change, with an unspeakably tender
theme of long time friends and legendary artists’ fnal collaborations
gracing Natasha’s path. Stanley Clarke and George Duke’s last studio
collaborations are present with Ellington’s “In A Sentimental Mood,” and
Bilal’s “All Matter.” The story deepens as we come to realize Peralta’s
last recordings are also found on The Heart of Infnite Change. This
was Peralta’s only session with both Bruner brothers, capturing Joe
Henderson’s “Black Narcissus” and Agrama’s updated version of Mingus’
“Goodbye Pork Pie Hat” by way of Joni Mitchell. These experiences
shape the resounding reverence in Natasha’s presentation, as this debut
album has become a formidable historical document.
