Album Description

Some Some Unicorn has evolved from an online collaborative project into a free flowing collective of improvising musicians, poets and artists who value shared experience and community. The band is led by composer and improviser Shaun Blezard and started during his time as New Voice Composer with Sound and Music. The first SSU album was Some Some Unicorn and The Golden Periphery. Since the debut album SSU has evolved into a remarkable live experience. Live the outfit is between 8 and 14 strong and is always different, drawn from many genres but with a focus in free improv, jazz and ambient drone. Touching points for the SSU sound are Alex Cline Ensemble, Talk Talk, Spontaneous Music Ensemble and The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble. The second SSU album Unicornucopia was the result of a successful crowd funding campaign and features tracks recorded live in the studio, with limited overdubs. Studio sessions were held in Salford, London, Lancaster and Ulverston. Unicornucopia is released in September 2016 and features over 50 players. credits released September 3, 2016 https://clutter.bandcamp.com/album/unicornucopia

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!
