Album Notes
Blurring the dividing lines of jazz-infused groove, free improvisation and the synergies of the electronic world, Color and Talea interconnect these forms and sounds through dynamic musicianship and chemistry as a group. Intricately energetic drum beats, lyrically abundant bass lines, and a shape-shifting saxophone blown through a wide array of electronic effects each contribute to the trio's tight-knit, organic sound.

CD Baby

When innovation and conviction blur the lines between Jazz Fusion, the Electronic genre and modern, free, harmonic exploration, you get something like Hip Hop, Down Tempo, groovy Weird Jazz that is rather like your first experience with bubble gum: "Ooh! Chewy, elastic, sweet, juicy... and I'll never be without it again!" This is one rockin' out jazz experience for the unconventional, albeit sensory-deprived streak in you.

This CD is fantastic! I purchased this CD while at a show the Color and Telea did at the Knitting Factory. I love it, and played the CD at a party for a group of Art Dealer friends of mine. They all loved it as well, so much so that I have been asked where to pick up copies, so I bought 4 more now to give away.

In a live setting the band excels both in showmanship and performance. With each song, the trio touches on a new sensation, cooking in all tastes. Their record of cerebral prose, Gallery of the Muse, is their cookbook. Blurring the dividing lines of jazz-infused groove, free transcendental sonics and the synergies of the electronic world, Color and Talea is intelligent and elegant in their creation of sound. Anthony Buonpane's aggressive, effect-driven style often reaches explosive levels, but is just as emotionally charged in serenity. Complimentary perfection is found in the ease-fueled, literal writing of bassist Benjamin Das, who, when things really begin to open up, is the backbone of each movement. The work of drummer Adam Sturtevant is a house of thunder and precision, laying a dynamically sound foundation underneath the laid plans of Das' nimble bass lines and providing an open path for Buonpane to tear into if he pleases. When given the room, Sturtevant wraps himself into a beat-making frenzy with the possibilities of him invoking an avalanche if he found himself close enough to a peak.

100% guarantee that minds will be blown
i recently came across these guys in a live setting in NYC and was blown away by their talented musicianship. i had to have the cd right then and there. and when i saw that for a first album this band decided to throw down 16 tracks, i was even more impressed. fans of quality music such as soulive, coltrane, parker, disco biscuits, eric truffaz, st. germain, or the drum 'n' bass, emo-ambient, dark groove, and jazz genres will not disappointed by this album. if you like talented, soul-inspired music or anything new and revolutionary cop this album right away. an up-and-coming band that's sure to please. get up on this befo' yo' neighbor does!

This CD is a mind-blowing experience - not to be missed.
The Gallery of the Muse is an absolute must have for any musical person out there. I guarantee it is unlike anything you have heard and that you will thoroughly enjoy it no matter what you are into.

Color and Talea are creating strong music with a future.
An interesting instrumental album pulling from an electronic-edged, forward thinking jazz ethos, Color and Talea's Gallery of the Muse is certainly worthy of digestion. Where the majority of three-piece jazz benders use the various keyboard/piano options to push their sound, Color and Talea is led by Anthony Buonpane on alto sax. Bouncing from more straightforward attacks like the opening "Bad Bread" to the more interesting effects-laden sax work of "Testosterone Zone," and "E.T.A.L.," the band shows an ability to move from one style to another without sounding forced. On skins, Adam Sturtevant establishes a confident mix of drum & bass, jazz-groove and even a touch of tribal to his percussive work, truly rising to the occasion on the over seven-minute "Diode" excursion. Rounding out this young trio is the steady and reliable bass work of Benjamin Das on both acoustic and electric. Showing the mark of various progressive jazz-heavy musicians such as the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey and the brilliant sax guru Skerik, Color and Talea are creating strong music with a future. One would simply hope that the individuality will continue to blossom and a truly unique voice will rise up and push them to the next level.
