Don Byron with the Bang on a Can Allstars

Cantaloupe Music, the NYC-based art/indie label, announces the release of a promotional mp3 download from their latest release, Bang on a Can/Don Byron: A Ballad for Many.

Bang on a Can--part rock band, part chamber ensemble, has been pushing the boundaries of experiemental classical, world, and jazz music for 15 years. Their latest project--after years of live collaboration--is a full-length disc of clarinetist/composer Don Byron's compositions, the followup to Byron's Grammy-nominated Ivey-Divey. This disc A Ballad for Many showcases the All-Stars as never before heard, and features the compositions of Byron, rarely featured outside of his own discs.

The CD is dedicated to groundbreakers, with a large-scale work dedicated to one-of-a-kind comic/satirist/star Ernie Kovacs (this mp3 is an excerpt from this), and to the Tuskegee Airmen, the famous African-American WWII-era fighter squadron.

You can buy the album through iTunes and/or cantaloupemusic.com for physical disc purchase.

“Eugene II" is available for download at All About Jazz.

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.
