Jeremy Siskind: Songs Of Rebirth
Title: Songs Of Rebirth
Label: Outside in Music

Songs Of Rebirth, pianist Jeremy Siskind's new recording (dropping April 22 on Outside In Music) with his long-standing trio, The Housewarming Project, featuring vocalist Nancy Harms and saxophonist Lucas Pino. The recordingconsists of meditations on the questions of rebirth, reawakening, and evolution, and representations of stories of rebirth in art,science, philosophy, psychology, and culture. The Housewarming Project was a 2020 recipient of a New Jazz Works grantfrom Chamber Music America, a competitive program that selects about fifteen ensembles per year for support through a blindpanel. The grant supports the creation of new works by professional U.S.-based composer-led jazz ensembles and helps assure thatthese compositions will be heard through live performances and recordings.The double-disc set offers two distinct themes. Disc one, "True Believers," presents successful rebirthings where acharacter reemerges meaningfully transformed. On disc two, "Cynics and Snags," the characters struggle or fail attheir attempts to remake themselves. "As the 'comic relief,' I've interwoven verses from an vaudeville-esque song I wrotecalled 'I'd Break Quarantine for You' throughout the two discs. Each verse is set in a different music style with the hopes ofdelighting the listener and cleansing their palette between more serious pieces," explains Siskind.
