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.
