Dream Cassette

Artists have been mixing rock and jazz for about 50 years now. Most of the time it takes either one of two forms - rock tunes with some added jazz instrumentation and stylistic touches, or music that comes basically from a jazz composing style with electric instrumentation. Examples from the early days include respectively, Blood Sweat & Tears, and the Mahavishu Orchestra. Jazz-rock fusion continues in the 21st Century and sometimes gets fairly eclectic, but basically continues in those two schools. But, as you might expect from my talking about that, this week we have something of an exception. It's by Canadian artists Joel Miller with Sienna Dahlen, and called Dream Cassette.

Matt Choboter Quintet

The quintet navigates original compositions and exploring varied rhythmic and harmonic frameworks. Concepts of recession and growth, varied dialogue between spontaneity and intricate composition, time experienced on both the micro and macro levels and polyrhythmic interactions with the goal of highly subjective perceptual flexibility. Informed by Carnatic rhythmic ideas, of how time and space can be experienced with great accuracy by way of interacting large-scale and small-scale frameworks. The goal to infuse multi-cultural musical practices and procedures into a Canadian Jazz context.

Aerialists cd release

About Aerialists: In a world where hyphenated genres are becoming the norm, all kinds of monikers are available for a contemporary folk band - post-folk, trad-core, alt-roots. File under World, or file under Celtic?

Aerialists are Scottish harpist Màiri Chaimbeul (Darol Anger & The Furies), and Canadians Adam Iredale-Gray (Fish & Bird) on guitar and Elise Boeur (Jenny Ritter) on fiddle. Performing as a 5 piece band with drums and bass, Aerialists combine post-rock textures and trad energy to create captivating new music. “Aerialists interweave Gaelic and Scandinavian folk traditions with jazz and just a hint of rock in an intoxicating blend.” - Folk Radio UK A Celtic Explosions In The Sky - Calgary Audience Member.

Triage

Triage is a trio made up of Jarrett Gilgore on alto saxophone, Noah Jarrett on upright bass, and Kevin Ripley on drums. The trio plays with the vision of creating deep, uncompromising, and relevant improvised music. The lack of chordal instruments allows every performance to evolve organically, note by note, without confinement to chords and/or melodies and/or moods. Triage plays mostly original music, with smatterings of free jazz greats, such as Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, John Tchicai, Dewey Redman, Anthony Braxton, etc. From moment to moment, their music can alternate between meditative and cacophonous, animated and reminiscent, chamber-like and contrapuntal, fluid and odd-metered, all the while speaking with an honest voice and keeping an open musical perspective.
