Album Description

Following her critically acclaimed debut album “Illuminations”, vocalist and composer Sarah Jerrom’s second full-length album, in a departure from the traditional jazz standard, presents original compositions and orchestrations for a 9-piece chamber jazz ensemble that features the poetry of William Butler Yeats. Blending the elements of jazz and classical music, The Yeats Project presents the words of W.B. Yeats set to music in an unprecedented style and approach. This distinctive interpretation and the ensemble’s unique combination of instruments played by a specially formed group of top-flight, multi-influenced Toronto musicians makes The Yeats Project a rarity in terms of concept and sound.

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!
