Rhizome [CMA 2014 NEW Jazz Works Recipient] was founded in 2009 and although originally recorded as part of Fabian Almazan's debut album "Personalities" [Biophilia Records], it was not until 2012 that the ensemble adopted the name "Rhizome"-[the subterranean part of a plant that provides the tree/plant with nourishment, making it possible for it to survive from season to season despite the harsh conditions that may exists above-ground]. With piano, bass, drums, voice/guitar and a string quartet as it's core instrumentation, the ensemble has it's roots grounded in jazz and classical traditions; but it is harmony, timbre and rhythm rather than any specific genre that guides Rhizome through its musical journeys.
