Cosmos featuring Jeff Parker

Dion Kerr's second single, “Cosmos” from his BACE Records debut, “Ivy”, is a multi-movement piece with recurring melodies and evolving musical themes. Here Kerr uses an original composition from his days at Manhattan School of Music, deconstructing and recasting it into a 9-minute big band arrangement. Featuring Jeff Parker on guitar, the two crossed paths during his time at the Banff International Workshop for Improvised Music in Alberta, Canada curated by Vijay Iyer. That meeting resulted in Parker’s feature on “Cosmos”, where the two share their unique voices and weave together a colorful sonic tapestry. Staying true to his passion for experimental music, this piece showcases Kerr’s skill as he marries drum machine beats with cassette tape saturation.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
