Fiona's Comments

So, Paul Motion, Kenny Wheeler, Joe Lovano, and Bill Frisell get lost at sea on a boat. It begins to storm and the wind picks up. The steering is shot, the boat spins out of control, and they decide to spend their last moments alive playing out. That's kinda what this song is like. Pretty cool. Jazz from the Chicago scene.

About the Album

Saxophonist AJ Kluth's new ensemble, ALDRIC, is a collective of some of Chicago's busiest musical improvisers. With Kluth on saxophone and melodica, ALDRIC features guitarist Toby Summerfield, trumpeter James Davis, drummer Quin Kirchner and bassist Dan Thatcher. Their sound incorporates both acoustic and electronic elements, and a penchant for melody, group improvisation, space, noise, and groove. Think clouds of sound you can move to - they are!

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.
