Album Description

Solar Vortex features several solo improvisations interspersed with compositions, including a blues (“1988”) and a Braxton-Style piece with tutti melodic lines (“Shra”). The two “Solo Tutti” pieces are improvisations that have been “composed out,” with Wing overdubbing several instruments, and in some places using the original improvisation as background for new ones.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
