Hommage à Bartók by Steve Swell's Kende Dreams, released 20 June 2018 1. Roswellian Folk Song 2. For Will Connell Jr. 3. After SQ4 4. Attack of the Mikrokosmos 5. Bartók Screams 6. Lent-Oh! 7. Ultima From John Corbett's liner notes: Trombonist Steve Swell's approach to a Bartók homage on Kende Dreams is a synthesis and it advisably leaves the encounter with the Hungarian a relatively loose and oblique affair, with specific points of convergence but an end product that feels more like it was inspired by the composer than obliged to adopt his methods.
