Liner Notes by John Corbett:


Tall tree
With wind in branches
Rattled leaves
Whisperers into distance
Trunk bending slightly
Supple
Not cracking
Branches moan as they move.
Dark wood, earthbound, groping upper atmosphere
Whisps of air, tea-kettle harmonics
A gasp, a hiss
Steam pipe formants
Secret spot where arbor ends and atmosphere begins.

Is this a description? By me or the tree? A bilateral translation?
The wind sketching its tree? A tree conjugating the breeze?
A writer observing? Merciless act of co-transformation? Movement of matter into spirit?

Anyway, the tree is one thing, the trumpet another. Or…?

All energies
Nothing solid
Every particle in motion
Impermanent
A give and take
Of sequence and space
And thought and emptiness
Of sadness and pleasure
Of certainty and doubt
Patience and harmon-mute
Another give and take
Of now and then
And then again
And when will then
And then and then
Or Zen and Zen
Response’s call
Call’s response
And recall’s yen.

From far apart
Northeast/Southwest
The duet
A re-meeting

After
Years of knowing
One
An-
Other
Not years but lifetimes
All sentient improvisors
Unite
Then
Untie
Breathe into these ears
Bow my branches
Sing into my navel
Sprout shouts
And fly the fuck out of here.

– John Corbett, Chicago, May 2021


________________________________


Almost Tomorrow was an intense and beautiful experiment in the snowy mountains in the middle of Sweden. The silence, mystery and harshness of that breathtaking place took form in the songs that gave birth to Susana Santos Silva and Torbjörn Zetterberg’s first album, that came out on Clean Feed in 2013. Tomorrow finally arrived, eight years later, and it sounds suspended in time, as if it is still almost tomorrow. A perpetual cycle of movement and stillness… the music starts, then stops. it starts again and stops one more time, it comes and goes, like it is trying to catch its own thoughts, repeating this life rhythm in a cradling flow. The sounds hang in the air waiting for the music to happen, with no rush, no pressure, no hurry to get anywhere. It just stands there as a reminder that life is too precious not to be noticed, and lived wholeheartedly. It’s an intimate dance of sounds, hopes and desires that fills the church, where stillness melts into motion, like if the windless moment suddenly is transformed into a myriad of floating weightless breezes, that spin and whirl until everything magically stops again… and time and space disappear. A quiet ecstasy takes place and the air gets overflowed with joy.
