Adam Turchin Obituary, Death Cause – The Manifest Destiny CD is a conceptual work of art that blurs the lines between traditional musical genres such as jazz, hip hop, and orchestral music to create a sound that extends well beyond the conventional musical spectrum. Manifest Destiny is an album that creates a mesmerizing cinematic musical illusion by showing large symphonic sections that build into extremely dramatic avant-garde modern jazz songs.
The album features guest artists who navigate in and out of a variety of musical genres, including ambient, neo soul, pop, and hip hop-style sounds, while also continuing to use instrumental movements and interludes around every corner, which are frequently woven in and out of the introductions and conclusion of many songs. The Manifest Destiny album is packed with hidden easter eggs and passages, and it features recurring musical themes, album plots, and an overall interweaving of melodies, proprietary synth sounds, and orchestral movements.
This results in an extremely cohesive listening experience from beginning to end, which is sure to draw listeners in, with each listen revealing more musical secrets and aural details! The Manifest Destiny CD includes contributions from a rotating cast of all-star artists, including as Terrace Martin, Robert “Sput” Searight, Rose Gold, Josef Leimberg, Brandon Ashe, Javier Starks, Kate Faust, JP Floyd, and Marlon Williams, among others.
The core group of musicians that make up the Manifest Destiny orchestra are the same core musicians that have worked on many recent highly acclaimed west coast jazz movement pieces and groups such as Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly,” Terrace Martin’s “Velvet Portraits,” and Josef Leimberg’s “Astral Progression’s,” and Snarky Puppy. The Manifest Destiny orchestra is a collaboration between these core musicians and the Manifest Destiny band.
The story of Adam’s Manifest Destiny is told in both a literal and an abstract manner during the course of Manifest Destiny. Manifest Destiny refers to the belief that every person possesses and deserves the right to have goals, dreams, and desires in the pursuit of living the best life that is possible, as well as the freedom to explore the unknown. This album serves as an excellent illustration of how the abstract concept of manifesting one’s destiny and utilizing the power of manifestation to allow for supreme growth and progression is incorporated into the Manifest Destiny theme as well.
