Innovative Jazz Sound with World Music Flare – The MUSANER Project

July 25, 2009 at 5:44 pm Leave a comment

Musaner 1The jazz fusion artists of the MUSANER project experiment mainly with folk sounds from Armenia and the Balkans, however you might also recognize overtones of  American as well as other European folk genres in their music as well. Whether the group is performing compositions of their very own or arrangements of existing folk tunes, the musical goal of each piece remains the same. The idea is to be able to incorporate  new and innovative musical structures within each work, while retaining the purity of the original folk tune upon which it is based. The result is a very distinctive and interesting jazz sound all their own. The project’s membership currently includes 10 very accomplished musicians on saxophone, flute, clarinet, accordion, double bass, piano, percussion, and various folk instruments, not to mention additional guest artists from time to time. Join their mailing list if you would like to keep up with the group’s current activity, but whatever you do, make sure to checkout their music
