Fiona's Comments

For days when Jazz doesn't give a Flux, dispense with the bassline, make the core shakey but topple free, keep it spinning until the audience leaves, which may be pretty soon. Then half way through....just tip it up and flip it over, giddy dudes.

About the Album

"Tilted" is from Canadian saxophonist Quinsin Nachoff's groundbreaking new recording, "Flux" with David Binney, Matt Mitchell, and Kenny Wollesen. The bassless ensemble of two saxophones, piano, and drums plays original compositions by Nachoff. "Flux" explores the space between modern jazz and contemporary classical, masterfully creating jazz chamber pieces that veer into mind-blowing auditory explorations while still holding their center.

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.
