Born: May 17, 1981
18 piece modern jazz ensemble fusing traditional big band sounds with many outside influences including classical, alternative, rock, hip-hop, electronica and nu-jazz.
Following a 10,000 year sleep, the Flying Dragon ascends from darkness into light, thus fulfilling the prophecy. Awake at last, the Flying Dragon shifts shapes, blossoming into a thoroughly resonant thunder. Vivd colors and obscure textures cover his forms. Behold, the Flying Dragon Orchestra!
...The evening I attended they performed an amazing composition The Long Way Around written by local saxophonist and composer Tom Erickson. I was floored with the depth of his writing; it expressed a modernism that incorporated complex harmonic structures with the flow and energy of modern popular forms such as electronic music.
