Historically the Midwest of the United States is a creative center for jazz and improvised music being the birthplace for organisations such as the AACM and BAG, as well as pioneers Albert Ayler, Faruq Z. Bey, and Raasan Roland Kirk to name just a few. Rent Romus, born in the great north of Michigan is no stranger to the pull of the lands and the creative soul of its music. Deciduous is an ongoing project based on the mutual bridging of those who share the creative tenacity, history and transitory nature of improvisation. This edition features the creative force of musicians from Columbus Gerard Cox, Hasan Abdur-Razzaq, John Philip Allen, Steve Simula Caleb Miller and from Detroit James Cornish.

"The musicians seemingly read each other's minds during many of the improvisations and move onward with a sense of purpose. Whereas, certain tracks are built with scrappy, and loosely developed plots, enriched with worldly modalities and extended soloing spots by the hornists...Romus and company fuse diversity with bold ideas and evocative solos to complement the disparate currents and their irrefutable fellowship." - Glenn Astartia, All About Jazz

""Deciduous" (bridges the people who share a creative toughness, history, and union in improvisation) is a project that restores the roots of improvisation playing with the spirit of a forest creation seed... a ritual of Aminism which evokes the spirit of music residing in the whole world It is filled with the ruins of the same sense of life as the creative music revolution of the 60s and 70s. The free jazz spirit revives, it is a proof that the creation gods are reviving." - Takeshi Goda
Jazz Tokyo

"What flowed out of my headphones was a natural school of improvisational jazz reminiscent of Pharaoh Sanders and the Art Ensemble of Chicago...the life-like performance with their moral urality situated in reverse are very fresh." A Challenge to Fate

" Here the improvisations have much more a solid base, departing for example from melodic themes and harmonic qualities. Really a joy to listen to." - Vital Weekly
