Fiona's Comments

Arguably (non-jazz) album of the year. Trumpet calls over the falling rain of piano and wash of guitar, the pitter-patter of percussion drifting in from across the room. A slow build of tension that never threatens. An epic quality to the entire album.

About the Album

Known for his work as half of the jazz/drone duo, I Heart Lung, Schlarb's latest work expands in new directions, incorporating wordless vocal choirs, string quartets and horn sections into his ensemble, which includes Mick Rossi of the Philip Glass Ensemble, Minutemen's Mike Watt, vocalists Julianna Barwick, DM Stith, Joel St. Julien (of ELLUL), Aaron Roche, Kris Tiner, Brian Blade's pedal steel Dave Easley, Weird Weeds percussionist Nick Hennies, Danny Miller and Tabor Allen (Rare Grooves/Widow Babies), bassists Steuart Liebig, C.J. Boyd and horns Anthony Shadduck, Danny T. Levin and David Moyer.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
