Whale blue vinyl! Anne, the second album By Toronto saxophonist and composer Joseph Shabason, is a tonal essay on degenerative illness.

Delicately and compassionately woven with interviews of Shabason's mother from whom the album takes its name, Anne finds its creator navigating a labyrinth of subtle and tragic emotions arising from his mother's struggle with Parkinson's disease.

Across the nine vivid postcards of jazz-laden ambience that comprise the album, Shabason unwraps these difficult themes with great care and focus revealing the unseen aspects of degenerative diseases that force us to re-examine common notions of self, identity, and mortality.

Shabason's uncanny ability to manoeuvre through such microscopic feelings is mirrored by his capacity to execute a similar tightrope-walk through musical genres.

His music occupies a specific space that is as palpable as it is difficult to pin labels to.

R.I.Y.L. Brian Eno, Jon Hassell, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Laraaji, Robert Rich, Harold Budd.
