"SoundPath is a long-form composition by the late groundbreaking pianist Muhal Richard Abrams, the resulted from a commission by Philadelphia-based saxophonist Bobby Zankel for his ensemble Warriors of the Wonderful Sound.
The piece, which was performed live twice in 2012 and 2018, roams from section to section, tempered by the broad experience of conductor and alto saxophonist Marty Ehrlich, a former collaborator of Abrams. He, better than anyone, understands the author’s vision and where this music stands." - JazzTrail
