Fiona's Comments

If Chopin were a reviewers name they'd not last long either. Joy, life, fuzzy-wuzziness, not very likely. Here we have a saline syrup of sad notes puffed out as clouds of oppression and dissolution. Cold and rarely inspiring. Great for mood setting a Victorian story set in modern times, if that were to become a popular show. #WastingTalents #BetterOffDead

About the Album

"Nocturne Op27 Nº1 in C# minor" is the first track on Chopin Project, the debut album from Dead Composers Club. Dead Composers Club, formed by saxophonist Noah Preminger and drummer Rob Garcia, also features guitarist Nate Radley and bassist Kim Cass. The idea behind the Dead Composers Club is to celebrate and explore the music of iconic composers. The quartet takes a thrillingly imaginative approach to Chopin's Nocturnes and Preludes, approaching these timeless works with a vitality and urgency that connects these stellar modern musicians with their 19th-century source, regardless of elapsed centuries.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
