Gerald Cleaver is best known for his career as a top jazz drummer, however, his memories of growing up in Detroit inspired him to create his latest project Signs.
This debut as an electronic musician and composer came about in his Brooklyn studio through a long process of looking to translate what he heard, into a new language. Cleaver was born and spent most of his life in Detroit, where he experienced, and was influenced by, the legendary development and blossoming of the Motor City electronic music scene. On each of the seven tracks from the vinyl (plus four bonus tracks), the master percussionist turns his creativity and craft onto the realm of a forward-thinking electronic dimension.
Listen to one of the most in-demand jazz drummers in this new way to express himself and discover how the palette has expanded through dream-like, transcendent electronic manipulations.
