Over a career now spanning nearly thirty years, Jamie Saft has established himself as one of the visionaries of contemporary American music. As a composer, pianist and keyboard innovator, and collaborator of music icons such as Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, the B-52s, Donovan, John Adams and John Zorn, he has been fearless in his pursuit of spiritual elevation through music that both seeks to embrace the whole American canon, and also transcend it, by seamlessly assimilating genres, traditions, idioms and timelines. In Loneliness Road, the follow-up album to that acclaimed 2014 release, the trio of Saft, Swallow and Previte are joined on three tracks by singer Iggy Pop. Saft is quick to point out that Loneliness Road is not simply a jazz piano trio with Iggy Pop added to three tunes. “It’s a deeper concept of original improvised music that transcends genre,” he explained. “I constructed this music on my initial notions of what music I'd like to improvise on with these particular musicians. There was no sense of ‘genre’ in the conception of that music.”All the elements for Loneliness Road came together in serendipitous fashion. While the intention of including Iggy Pop in the album had been discussed very early by Jamie Saft and RareNoise producer Giacomo Bruzzo, both understood it was by no means an easy objective to accomplish, and that it was all down to the music. Loneliness Road is indeed the result of a truly collaborative effort: “While I did compose all the music for this album, Steve and Bobby and ultimately Iggy were all able to realize this music with me at the very highest level. Iggy's lyrics and vocal approach are essential to each of the three tunes he contributed to. It's as if they were always there.”
