Primate Gestures by J.D. and the Sons of RhythmPrimate Gestures brings you twenty-two tracks of collective jazz improvisation on two discs from J.D. and the Sons of Rhythm.

Gestures brings a core group of players back together, and their growing familiarity allows for deeper levels of exploration between them. With the exception of two multi-tracked cuts, this album portrays the conversations of the group coming to know itself through music.

This release has a classic sound, with improvisations showing a developing intensity, yet still explorative and light to the touch. The musicians now known as the "core" are becoming the backbone of this collective, and Primate Gestures stands tall on this strength.
