Fiona's Comments

User Error - sounds as abstract as the reason your computer isn’t working again. If you're looking for something less esoteric you’d do well to check out Hashem's website http://hashemjazz.com/ where you'll find Pretty a tune with a cute animation and more examples of Hashem's fluidity as a melodic and diverse player.

About the Album

With eleven new works, highlighting the dramatic chemistry and rapport within his sextet, New York-based saxophonist and composer Hashem Assadullahi presents his debut recording for OA2 Records. Inspired by events, people and passions, the compositions are brought to life through the ensemble's strength of collective improvisation and their shared eclectic musical aesthetic. While drawing on a wide array of inspirations, including jazz, classical, pop, and movie soundtracks, each piece focuses on melody and mood, from introspective to lighthearted fun. Hashem Assadullahi Sextet, Hashem A. (saxophones), Ron Miles (trumpet), Justin Morell (guitar), James Miley (piano), Tyler Abbott (bass), Ryan Biesack (drums)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
