PS Apart from the fact that the above photo is very good, I’m involved in this because Adam and I have a long history together, having learned from the same tabla guru, having studied the same ghanaian music and both having played a lot with Don Cherry who was working in the original Dome in 1971. /beche

Top 10 CDs of 2011 – Rudolph conducts improvisationally a large coterie of New York City‚s most accomplished musicians from across jazz and world music scenes, arriving at some unique harmonies and compelling episodes from what could be a model for a contemporary symphony. – Howard Mandel, Jazz Beyond Jazz 
The Sound of a Dream is the best orchestral improvisation disc of the year. You really NEED to hear this special offering! Bruce Lee Gallanter – Downtown Music Gallery 2011
GO: ORGANIC ORCHESTRA – CONCERT REVIEWS ” I caught a performance Go: Organic Orchestra down in SoHo last spring and was swept away by what they were doing. It was fascinating and ahead of its time, in the best possible way. I loved every minute of it. ” – Marc Meyers, jazzwax.com 
Of the 10+ times I attended at Roulette, every time was absolutely magical and distinct, yet sublimely unified and delicately cohesive. – Charles Blass Sun Radio, Switzerland 
” I was fortunate to have attended two nights with Adam Rudolph’s Go: Organic Orchestra at Roulette a few months back and was blown away by Adam’s distinctive blend of jazz and world music as well as his conducting.” – Bruce Lee Gallanter – Downtown Music Gallery
”The music, performed by a large ensemble of wind and percussion players, rose like vines from hand drummer Adam Rudolph’s written instructions and hand signals. And it truly is organic — a blend of gentle sustained dissonance, heaven-crashing rhythm jams, and individual improvisations. No joke: a startling and involving development in roots music, with more to follow.” – Greg Burk, LA Weekly
”This mixture of planning and spontaneity is brought to life with such a high level of musicality that the organic part of the group‚s name is always honored. – Steve Holtje, The Big Takeover
”Extraordinary…. the audience was absolutely absorbed. – Howard Mandel, Jazz beyond Jazz
