Notes & Reviews:

On his new album, Jace Clayton/ DJ Rupture again brings his sense of compassion and wide-eyed exploration to the table, but instead of using a variety of sources for inspiration, for the first time, Clayton has chosen a single, if multivalent, subject for his artistic dissection: the life of gay African-American composer Julius Eastman.

Notes & Reviews:
