Loire Cotler releases an original arrangement of Thelonious Monk's, In Walked Bud
With original compositional interludes titled, Sky Path, Cotler ignites a new generation of Jazz fans.
By: Loire Cotler
Loire pays homage to her jazz heroes reimagining this 1947 classic, which Monk wrote as a tribute to Bud Powell with lyrics by Jon Hendricks. Loire's original interludes, titled Sky Path, reflect a deeper philosophy about the flight path of migratory birds in formation and the magnetism of kinship.
Inspired by classical Konnakol, an ancient technique of South Indian beatboxing, Loire spreads her jazz wings and soars into uncharted territories. In Walked Bud (Sky Path) features Grammy winning contemporary jazz and legendary world music icons, Howard Levy (harmonica, piano), Glen Velez (frame drums) and Eugene Friesen (cello).
The single is available for download on iTunes and streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.
