Composer/Saxophonist Frank Macchia and Composer/Drummer Brock Avery have created a new project that defies categorization, following up their previous album Rhythm Kaleidoscope. Taking improvised drum solos that Brock created, Frank has created stream of consciousness music compositions around the drums that take the listener on a journey into new rhythms and sounds. Featuring over 40 woodwinds and brass, keyboard and string accompaniment this album is a massive sound collage of psychedelic proportions! Azure is the first volume of three EP’s that will be issued in 2020 and will be followed by Gold in April and Ruby in July.
