Aurora Lumina (Chamber Jazz)

Aurora Lumina. Chamber Jazz
The sonic palette of Aurora Lumina combines the passion of Arabic modes with the shifting moods of the Western classical canon. If one imagines the compositional odysseys of John Zorn (featured in Jenny Game’s complex, through-composed and rhythmically shifting
pieces) crossed with the pulsating freedom of Ornette Coleman’s best ensembles (transmitted via Poul Grage’s evanescent percussion work and Michael Currie’s freely melodic basslines) and the lyricism of the Modern Jazz Quartet (evident in Peter Neville’s virtuosic lines on the vibes) then one has some idea of the flavor of an Aurora Lumina performance.
