At an early age Jack Sayre became intrigued with odd music through exploring his father's massive and eclectic record collection. The collection was chalked full of kitschy pop, early synthesizer experiments, quadraphonic demos, as well as, jazz, classical, country, rock, and others.
He went on to study music and became degreed in piano performance and music composition. From that early age to the present his work has been to create music that he did not yet "like."
Describing this music would entail words and phrases like: non-cyclical, odd metered, linear harmony, contrapuntal, composed, structured, grooving, song, and finally -- enjoy!

Progressive and funky, this CD brings to mind both King Crimson and Mrs. Fun. The beats are strong and the composition propels the music forward. Jack Sayre wrote all the music and brought in some of the area's best musicians to bring it to life. Recorded at his home studio in Madison, WI, Nap of Earth sounds much bigger than its humble origins.
