Sign in to view read count
Recorded at the Blue Note jazz club in New York City, Across The Divide is a song cycle documenting the shared rhythms of Omar Sosa and Tim Eriksen, a New England multi-instrumentalist specializing in native and adopted American musics. The album is a narrative, a tale of musical and spiritual passage, melding and mingling seemingly disparate cultures yet highlighting the musical roots common to us all. Featured within are sampled readings from Langston Hughes, renowned giant of the Harlem Renaissance, whose words add lift to the musical journey.

Featuring: Omar Sosa, piano, fender rhodes, electronics, samplers, vocals; Tim Eriksen, vocals, banjo, violin; Childo Tomas, electric and electro-acoustic bass guitars, kalimba, chigovia, vocals; Marque Gilmore, acousti-lectric drumz, vocals; Leandro Saint-Hill, soprano, alto & tenor saxophones, clarinet, flutes, caxixis; David Gilmore, acoustic & electric guitars; Ramon Daz, bat drums, congas, cajn, vocals.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
