John Jeffrey, the drummer for Moon Duo, has announced his debut solo album, Passage, and shared its first single, the eight-minute long instrumental “Leaving Franklin.” Passage is due out October 30 via Jean Sandwich (a Portland-based label). Check out “Leaving Franklin” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Passage consists of four lengthy jazz-influenced instrumental songs and a press release says Jeffrey was inspired by Alice Coltrane and Canadian painter Takao Tanabe.

“I didn’t want to have a structure in place, in order to be guided in a specific direction,” says Jeffrey in a press release. “Everything was developed around simple rhythmic patterns.”

When on touring breaks in 2018 and 2019 Jeffrey returned home to Vancouver Island, BC and recorded a series of sessions at The Hive with engineer Colin Stewart.

Passage Tracklist:

1. Lonely Years
2. Leaving Franklin
3. Play It As It Lays
4. Pacific Calm
