Bottle Tree – Open Secret

Bottle Tree - Open Secret

Bottle Tree is a new collaborative project consisting of singer/scholar A.M. Frison and composer/cornetist Ben Lamar Gay.

The pair are joined by Italian drummer Tommaso Morettiand according to the label the trio sound “embodies a heart beating to West African mutated funk with the spirit of avant-garde jazz and a Motown-molded melodic mind — like a futuristic fantasy of Stevie Wonder backed by Don Cherry and Novos Baianos in the early 1970s.”

Listen to “Open Secret,” the first excerpt  from their forthcoming full-length album below.  

Open Secret is out now digitally and on vinyl via International Anthem – buy from Bandcamp.
