Frigid Air New Release from the Air Department


Sign in to view read count
Frigid Air, the latest aural excursion from world fusion adventurers The Air Department, may well be their most eloquent offering to date.

On this their third release, the strong jazz roots and world music sensibility of The Air Department have been blended exquisitely together. This collection of new music, and one reimagined piece from the archives, artfully mines the strengths of composer Roger Ebacher's deep affinity for the art of improvisation both on flute and piano, and the tasteful percussive poetry of drummer Dennis Pelletier.

As the title would seem to suggest, the feeling of Frigid Air is suited to that of the Winter Season, but is by no means necessarily a cold mood itself. The seductive warmth of Brasil is here, along with the contemplative cool air of Autumn, and the hypnotic mystique of the Orient. Once more, The Air Department beckons you to join them as they traverse musical territories both distant and familiar.

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.
