BOOK OF STORMS
Recorded live at the Orenda Records 1st Anniversary Festival at bluewhale in Downtown Los Angeles, this epic performance imagines episodic ritual dances for the Shinto demon-gods of wind and thunder, Fujin and Raijin. Conceived as two complimentary sides of vinyl, this limited edition release features some of LA's most inventive instrumentalists in a wild, psychedelic, and other-worldly exploration of sound and groove!

...prepare yourself for a hell of a ride." — Something Else Reviews
"Rosenboom again presents advanced conception and improv in equally large doses...enough musical ideas to fill up the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum...It’s not a Miles Davis concert circa 1975, but it’s hard the escape the feeling of such an event. Book Of Storms does nothing but strengthen Daniel Rosenboom’s reputation as a conceptual improviser of the highest order. Whenever you see his name near the words “Book of,” prepare yourself for a hell of a ride."
