Coleman, Steve and Five Elements – “Functional Arrhythmias” – [Pi Recordings]

humana   3/29/2013   CD, Jazz

Coleman’s masterful alto sax sets the mood for each of these tracks that were spontaneously composed, all with the theme of “creating a musical analogy of the interactions between the circulatory, nervous, respiratory, and other biological systems of the human body” (from the CD sleeve). The trumpet, bass, drums, and guitars that join the sax bring to life the “functional arrhythmias” the ensemble set out to express through accessible yet challenging jazz.
