About the Album

From the cosmos the Eulipion vibration sprung forth on the planet. Beings of light, love and creativity brought new sounds and healing to earth, "a duty-free gift for the traveler." Over the eons, this unique frequency of being has been passed from generation to generation. Mark Fox is an avatar of this vibration and energy, a "Neulipion" brought into the music world by previous carriers of the light - Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Archie Shepp, Yusef Lateef, Jimmy Hopps, Pharoah Sanders and the like. "Iridescent Sounds" (Humble Genius Records) is an expression and confirmation of this historic, yet eternally new sound and feeling, that brings an ancient future of love, light, joy, possibility and transformation to the world. At the helm of this cosmic vessel, alongside Mark Fox, is Maestro Todd Barkan, producer extraordinaire, NEA Jazz Master and one of the carriers of the Eulipion torch. The group entered the studio time-machine back in April of 2018 to record Fox's second album as a bandleader, following the global success of his first CD, Mark Fox - "Thee Octaves Above the Sun." "Iridescent Sounds" is a compelling journey into unforeheard realms and dimensions of beauty and grace. Lead by saxophonist/composer Mark Fox, joined by masters Peter Stoltzman on piano, Felix Ayodele on guitar, Troy Robey on bass, Tom Tilton on drums, Daniel Moreno & Jimmy Hopps on percussion and special guest Hugh Ragin on trumpet this CD delivers transcendental music of the highest caliber.

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.
