Overview

Glen Velez' experimental percussion exotica and Ellipsis' book packaging makes for a singular and peerless release. This drummer pays homage to the ancient frame drum. Accompanying his sonic visions is a 20-page museum depicting the instrument through history. Here he has a quintet, the Handance Ensemble. The group is mostly percussionists, however one member is on violin. Examples of the frame drum are employed from South India, the Middle East, Central Asia, Brazil, Italy and more. Not simply guiding us through time with the history and sounds of the frame drum, Velez gives us ample experimentation to ponder with exotic, odd-numbered timings. I give this five banners, with shades of every "rhythmcolor."
