La Fresh Cut Orchestra è il risultato dell'incontro che il trombettista Josh Lawrence, il ...

Fresh Cut Orchestra: Mind Behind Closed Eyes

Read "Mind Behind Closed Eyes" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian Microjam!
RareNoise Records
2016

Simultaneously dedicated to 20th century classical composer Olivier Messiaen and legendary rap and hip-hop producer J Dilla, Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian Microjam! is a musical adventurer's dream and a purist's nightmare. But anything more conventional from conceptualist, composer and guitarist ...

Fresh Cut Orchestra: From The Vine

Read "From The Vine" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Here's a jny: Philadelphia band that offers a novel perspective on large ensemble jazz with ever-so-slight inclinations toward the outside realm, which is just enough to present an enlivening aspect to these nine diversely enacted tracks. Sadly, “The Mothers' Suite" compositions relate to the tragic passing of bassist Jason Fraticelli's mother-in-law, shortly before the birth of ...
