October 1st Release Date!

"Hand In Hand In The Hand Of The Moon" by Billie Davies -
Inspired by Artist Serge Vandercam

Drummer Billie Davies pays homage to Danish-born Belgian artist Serge Vandercam in this exciting free-form adventure. "Hand In Hand In The Hand Of The Moon" is a musical symphony inspired by Vandercam's exquisite creations. Davies says it is, "The painter influenced by the drummer and the drummer influenced by the painter over a period of three days of the full moon." Born in Belgium and now living in New Orleans, she continues "A collaborative work, conceived in 1995 resulting 20 years later in a series of 8 paintings and a jazz symphony of eight musical movements."

This music was recorded 'live' in one take on an afternoon in April. For each movement, the corresponding actual painting was hanging on the wall, visible to all musicians, in bright light. True art.
