Album Review

Ajemian, Jason – “Riding The Light Into The Birds Eye” – [Sundmagi]

abacus   10/4/2011   CD, Jazz

Jason Ajemian, a prominent musician/composer from the Chicago avant-jazz scene, brings us his latest jazz-opera piece. Ajemian has made a name for himself in the improvised/experimental jazz scene for his unique blending of genres and the intellectual background he incorporates into his work. Recorded all in one take with no overdubs (except trk1), this piece ranges from delicate to frenetic, funky and soulful to abstract and sparse. Stylistically abstract poetry weaves throughout the free-jazz landscape painted by soulful basslines, chopped-up gritty guitar, dueling drums, chaotic trumpet, and screaming saxophone. Album tracks together and track 4 has language!!
