Recommended: Sacred Garment: Percussion and Piano Music for the Martha Graham Technique

By Kevin Sport; 33 tracks, 74 minutes

Finding music to match the meters, tempos and accents of Martha Graham’s detailed technique exercises can be its own Errand Into the Maze. For this CD, percussionist Kevin Sport worked with former Graham dancer Peggy Lyman Hayes to create music tailored for a complete Graham class: floor work, standing center combinations and across-the-floor (even including more advanced exercises like “Pretzel” and “Falls on Eleven”). A great mix of instruments, like conga drums, piano, organ and upright bass, adds welcome texture and variety.
