An album 18 years in the making, a tribute to a legendary jazz master, and a treasure trove of original compositions by jazz’s leading artists: Brian Blade’s Life Cycles presents an all-star ensemble of musicians performing bold and colorful music in anticipation of their new CD release, as well as the timeless music of the great Bobby Hutcherson.

Life Cycles (Volume 1) is a band that was formed by three members of The Fellowship Band in 2001, comprised of six musicians living in the New York City metropolitan area at the time and performing under the name Subterranean Sextet. Back in 2001, the sextet mostly played in underground night clubs around Manhattan, but there were various festival appearances throughout the country.

All the members of the band had composed music specifically for the ensemble, but unfortunately, they never recorded together. Fast forward to the present day – the band has decided to reestablish itself and expand to include percussionist Rogerio Boccato, as well as finally record their original compositions and the music of one of their heroes: the great vibraphonist, marimbist, and composer Bobby Hutcherson.

Life Cycles had hoped to record with Hutcherson, but sadly, he passed away in August of 2016. As a result of this loss to the world, the band felt that no more time should be taken for granted. They decided to honor Hutcherson’s memory by recording several compositions he wrote and recorded, including the entirety of his album Now!, recorded in 1969 and released in 1970.
