Fiona's Comments

Comfy armchair music or slick sidewalk stepper, works both ways. Elative and awesome band.

About the Album

Alon Nechushtan is already known to savvy listeners for his deft piano playing and his work in klezmer (he leads the band Talat, which released a record on Tzadik's Radical Jewish Culture Series) and his various jazz ensembles, with releases on Ayler Records and Between the Lines as well as the unexpected moodiness of his superstar 12-tet Dark Forces, with a release on Creative Sources. Alon brings his various interests under one roof on Venture Bound.
