BLOOM featuring Adam O’Farrill

Featuring the music of Dion Kerr
Duration: 6:41

Hypnotic repetition of lush chords drives the multiple layers of percussive syncopations on Dion Kerr’s first single “Bloom”, from his upcoming BACE Records release IVY. Throughout the track, Kerr evokes a worldly feeling while maintaining his compositional storytelling and eclectic sound. The main melodies remain simple, floating above the ever-changing backgrounds. Listeners are greeted by young trumpet phenom Adam O’Farrill midway through the song as he maneuvers his way through Kerr’s structure. The two have shared stages in New York City in the past but this is the first time they have been properly documented together. Setting the mood for the rest of IVY, “Bloom” gives a window into the sonic space which Kerr will “sound off” in.

Manny Echzabal: Short Notice

Read "Short Notice" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

From its melodic, passionate opener “Time Out" through the moody, inward looking “Unknown Identity," young Miami saxophonist/composer Manny Echzabal exhibits huge promise on this rolling, thrill seeking debut. In-between those reflective bookends, Echzabal and his equally young, emphatic bandmates, rising Australian pianist Tal Cohen, nimble bassist Dion Kerr, and responsive, groove setting drummer David ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
