Album Description

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
