Revival brings the fervor of old southern Baptisms held down by the river in juxtaposition to bebop. There is a spiritual renewal that occurs within a revival, full of shouts and dancing; the vigorous riffs and ‘punk-tuations’ drench the old school memory with a modern youthful sound. As doublings leap and shift within the orchestration of a simple composite melody, I felt motivated to transform woodwind instruments into a sound that is non-traditional, substantial, virtuosic and ALIVE!
