A few years ago​,​ ​American composer/trombonist Peter Zummo discovered a ​1984 ​recording ​of unreleased material from his ​Six Songs​ suite in his archive. It was the basis for Lateral Pass (2014), his award winning score for modern-dance choreographer Trisha Brown's work of the same name. The work is now being released as a new LP, Frame Loop. Recorded live and ​in single takes, it features​ a stellar line-up of longtime collaborators:​ Arthur Russell on amplified cello, Bill Ruyle on marimba, ​and Mustafa Ahmed on congas. Zummo ​plays trombone and euphonium.

​Zummo describes ​the recording as "a​n ​exercise in spontaneous arrangement." ​He ​mainly ​​hews close to the ​score, ​while from time to time introducing canonic lines ​and variations. Arthur Russell, using his signature amplified cello sound, alternates between ​solos and rhythm playing​. Bill Ruyle ​vamps on the notation, while Mustafa Ahmed's improvise percussion​ ​drives the forward momentum.​ Sometimes the music takes its time ​traversing a sonic landscape; at other points, it ​jumps from one section to another​​. Players'​ decisions ​push and pull the downbeat​; rounds ​emerge, then disappear​.
