Rising star pianist/composer Connie Han brings the ancient Sumerian culture to the present day by channelling Inanna — the ancient Sumerian goddess of love, beauty and war — on her third release for Mack Avenue Records. Featuring Katisse Buckingham (alto flute and piccolo), John Patitucci (bass), Rich Perry (tenor saxophonist) and drummer Bill Wysaske, Secrets of Inanna creates a new world open to interpretation, harkening back to the ethereal soundscapes of 1970s spiritual jazz with the modern composition Han has received praise for since her 2018 debut Crime Zone, creating a truly unique soundscape of great depth.
“I firmly believe that to create art with substance and quality, the artist must sacrifice a portion of her soul — physically, mentally and spiritually. That to create something truly beautiful, the artist must delve into the savage darkness that lives inside us all. To me, The Descent of Inanna serves as a perfect allegory to this universal struggle among creative artists. Inanna paid the ultimate sacrifice of her own life in the underworld — all to confront her inner demons to become a whole and complete being.” – Connie Han
