ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This stunning double is the recording debut of the Kai Big Band, a 14-piece ensemble of the best young jazz musicians here.

Made after a 10-day run in Dublin's Project this year, 'Projections' catches the band, which includes the brass and reeds, plus french horn, violin, cello and electronics, in fine form and on top of an ambitious, challenging programme of eight pieces by members of the ensemble.

The range is striking, from Roth's authoritative orchestral development of the motif of 'Inneholder', through the cornucopia of ideas in Jacobson's 'Ten Paramis' to the near-eastern flavour of Roche's 'Tigsti' and the -relatively- straight ahead 'I Can't Think' and 'Baiking' by Blackmore and Berrill respectively.

The band's solo strength and it's ability to handle the orchestral complexities, rhythmically and harmonically, of both the formal and the free, are striking."

Ray Comiskey, Irish Times 10/11/2006


"One of the most important releases in the Irish jazz scene for years,"

John O'Flynn, Boards.ie 6/1/2007

21st century update on the big band tradition.
21st century big band music with influences from the worlds of electronica, Balkan and modern classical music. Manages to be both adventurous and accessible. Highly recommended!
