With its exploration of production and processing techniques, Climbing in Circles pt. 4 is the first album for which Glaser has expressly used the studio itself as an instrument and as a vehicle for composition. Following on from his critically acclaimed release, Climbing in Circles pt. 3 (Ubuntu Music, 2021), the new album features long-time collaborator, Matthew Herd, on saxophones and piano, alongside trumpeter, electronic artist and producer, Alex Bonney, and the album was built from the ground up through a reflective process of improvisation, recording and studio-craft.
The performance of this work will take the listener on an other- worldly journey through hip grooves, blues and New Orleans funk, lyrical and voice-like Celtic folk melodies, free Jazz, and hymns and jazz ballads with a nod to the Great American Songbook.
