Jazz pianist and composer David Braid presents his latest project, Flow, an album of compositions for piano and string quartet. Although the Canadian composer is greatly respectful of the Western Art Music Tradition, he draws much inspiration from Eastern philosophical ideas.Braid believes the Chinese concept of qi (energy flow) and the Greek concept of pneuma (spirit or soul) are expressions of the same foundation of 'true inspiration.' The Epoque String Quartet performs the five works featured on this album. Founded in 1999, the Prague-based ensemble masterfully fuses jazz, rock, and funk music with classical and contemporary traditions.
