Pianist/keyboardist Marc Cary has been releasing songs from download from his Bandcamp each month for a pay what you want rate (with as low to free) for a few months now, and each track is great, making its own aural explorations. It would seem the song for each month goes through as many permutations as Cary has made in his various larger works in his career. Today, he and his Focus Trio of bassist Burniss Earl Travis and drummer/percussionist Sameer Gupta release "Sound Portals", a shifting song based on a North Indian Raga. It's an amazing nine-minute journey in sound that you should definitely check out and cop after the jump.
