Fiona's Comments

Huh, well this is a nifty little tune. Yes, there's plenty of free improv/avant-garde going on here, but the duo have concentrated all of the different elements into a tight space, making it easy to take in all the tune's complexities at once. Very cool track.

About the Album

"Area 51" is a duo improvisation with Phil Grenadier (trumpet) and Bruno Raberg (acoustic bass). We recorded an improvisation and then overdubbed another reacting to the first one. The original acoustic sounds have been manipulated sonically to create an exciting contrasting soundscapes.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
