Three years in the making, matterlightblooming is jazz epic, a transcendental give and take between death and reanimation, a glittery fist in the face of God. The album was produced by over a dozen musicians across multiple Chicago studios, a product of sweat, blood, conflicting schedules, and frozen custard. It is finally free, and beautiful, and $9.99. Let us celebrate the life in all of its glory. Kill the predictable. Build a church for the genre-agnostics. Praise art, and bless the renaissance.
