Album Description

Mind On Fire is the duo project of brothers Brad Gill (vibraphone & percussion) & Sam Gill (saxophones). Since forming in 2017, they have developed a unique approach to blending improvisation and composition, in both duo and expanded formations. On Still Vol. 1, they are joined by three esteemed guest performers: clarinettist Phillippa Murphy-Haste, dizi (Chinese flute) player Chloe Chung, and drummer Chloe Kim. Still Vol. 1 documents compositions that have featured in Mind On Fire’s live sets throughout 2018-19. Two duo works are featured alongside three extended trio pieces, traversing a wide musical terrain that draws on Brad and Sam’s interests in jazz, free improvisation & contemporary classical approaches to music-making. The album’s tracks explore a wide variety of inspirations, including the ancient Benedictine monastic art of Lectio Divina, the ruins of the Indonesian Buddhist temple Borobudur, and the morning bird-calls heard in Sydney’s Inner West.

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!
