Woozy like the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Transcends bland days. #Beautiful

About the Album

"Charcoal, Clear, Beautiful All Over" is an original composition by Salim Washington, and the opening track on the Alchemy Sound Project's debut album "Further Explorations." On "Further Explorations" five composer-musicians and their invited guests find a way to meld their distinctive approaches and voices to create a unique sound with the lushness and intricacy of a symphony orchestra combined with the spontaneity and interplay of a small jazz group. The five core members of Alchemy Sound Project were brought together by the Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute, a program initiated by the American Composers Orchestra and the Center for Jazz Studies at Columbia University to encourage jazz composers to explore writing music for the symphony orchestra. Directed by composer/trombonist/educator George Lewis, JCOI selects 38 jazz composers at various stages of their careers, chosen from a competitive national pool of applicants, for a one-week summer intensive with leading composers, conductors and performers.
