A follow-up to Sommers' critically acclaimed 2020 release Peninsula, Intertwine captures Sommers' dynamic compositional style in a new light. The album features guitar as the primary harmonic instrument, and draws inspiration from rock and soul musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Donny Hathaway, Aretha Franklin, and the Beatles. With a stellar frontline of horn players and a rocksteady rhythm section, Sommers is in great company on this adventurous outing. Alongside Sommers, Intertwine features Chris Madsen on tenor saxophone, Geof Bradfield on bass clarinet, soprano and tenor saxophone, Matt Gold on guitar, and Dana Hall on drums and cymbals.Met with widespread acclaim, 2020's Peninsula was recognized by JazzTimes as an album which "resonates with hardcore jazz fans and non-jazz listeners alike." Intertwine features a fuller instrumentation, filling out the trio of artists present on Peninsula - Sommers, Geof Bradfield and Dana Hall, with an ever-present sonic backdrop provided by guitarist Matt Gold, and the addition of celebrated tenor saxophonist Chris Madsen. Sommers uses this instrumentation to capture a celebration of tight-saxophone harmonies
