Album Description

A jazz symphony inspired by paintings by Serge Vandercam influenced by Billie Davies on drums. A collaborative work during a full moon cycle in 1995 resulting 20 years later in a series of 8 paintings and a jazz symphony of 8 improvisational movements. “Free drummer Billie Davies calls Hand In Hand In The Hand Of The Moon a symphony, which implies composition, larger planned structures, etc. Nothing like that is here, as the music was improvised and recorded in one session. However, this music is not just a free session of highly intuitive and sensitive players; it has a reason for being, and that reason is the intersection of the life paths of two artists working in different media -Davies, a musician and Serge Vandercam, a painter, at a specific time and place.” — Budd Kopman, All About Jazz
