Never Enough Hope
Never Enough Hope
Never Enough Hope is the brainchild of composer/improviser/collaborator Toby Summerfield. With Never Enough Hope, Summerfield employs elements of all the musical neighborhoods he inhabits; the collective voice of rock, post-rock and punk; New York No Wave minimalist/maximalist extremes; joyful big band theatricality; highly orchestrated new music soundscapes; powerful, dense, freewheeling improvised music; lush, thick polytonal/polyrhythmic textures. Never Enough Hope is the synthesis of Summerfield's outlook: the white-light, information-rich emotional immediacy of free music balanced by the full-belly satisfaction that comes from more familiar songwriting. Summerfield composes with each member of the ensemble in mind--player, improviser, and composer--all their unique voices represented. The musicians in Never Enough Hope are Summerfield's peers, heroes and teachers. Never Enough Hope is like a family reunion and an all-star team.
