Album Description

Composer/Saxophonist Frank Macchia and Composer/Drummer Brock Avery have created a brand new project that defies categorization. Taking improvised drum solos that Brock created, Frank has created stream of consciousness music compositions around the drums that create a colorful sonic experience. Featuring over 40 woodwinds and a bevy of brass, keyboards and string accompaniment this album is a massive sound collage of psychedelic proportions! A great 'deep-listening" adventure for the not-faint-of-heart!! Jazziz Magazine states "Frank Macchia is an inventive composer and arranger who deserves comparisons to Gil Evans and Pat Metheny." Three time Grammy nominated and National Endowment of the Arts recipient Macchia produced the project and is featured on saxes andwoodwinds, with guest artists Alex Iles on trombone, Stefanie Fife on cello and Eric Jensen on electric guitar.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
