Bloom Project (Romus, Rent and Thollem McDonas) – “Sudden Aurora” – [Edgetone Records]
The Bloom Project is Rent Romus on alto and soprano saxophones and Thollem McDonas on piano. Together they bring us songs based around the theme of ???sudden aurora??? (the song titles make a poem). Listening to this is as pristine an experience as I imagine witnessing the actual aurora borealis would be. Both musicians are in rare form as they express themselves through their instruments and music that they???ve composed. It???s easy to get a feel of each musician???s philosophies from these works of art. Conventional piano on all but 9, 10, and 11, where the wires are tweaked and plucked.
Try: 8, 13, 7, 5.
PGM: See inside of jewel case under CD for early end times of each song. Track 12 is :47 of silence.
