Following the release of their debut album, The Angel and the Brute Sing Songs of Rapture, Dialectical Imagination now plans to share their work through performances at key venues and festivals.

”Since 2015, Dialectical Imagination has been continuously honing a unique and highly engaging form of musical expression they call “ecstatic music” which radically integrates the creative spirit of free-improvisation with the structural integrity of composition. For Dialectical Imagination, the full gamut of expression is in play from the cathartic to the hypersensitive, from the iconoclastic to the resplendent. No two performances are alike and yet their sound is unmistakable. Not fitting neatly into a particular genre, the ecstatic music of Dialectical Imagination persists as an expression of paradox.

The trio that Blake enlists includes his long time friend and collaborator Dmitry Ishenko on bass and legendary drummer Jeff Williams (Dave Liebman, Stan Getz, Joe Lovano, etc.). Ishenko is a natural choice as Blake has played with him for nearly 15 years and they were both students of great pedagogue and soprano saxophone innovator Steve Lacy. Williams' excellence behind the kit is no secret and he has revitalized the music of a new generation of players with his wisdom and inventiveness.
