Either/Orchestra "Eyeye"

Posted 3 months ago

The Either/Orchestra recorded live performing "Eyeye" at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy NY on November 20, 2011.

The program featured the premiere of bandleader Russ Gershon's new suite "The Collected Unconscious," funded by a Jazz New Works grant from Chamber Music America. It's a sprawling piece inspired by Ethiopian scales and rhythms, but ranging throughout the E/O's musical universe of jazz and afro-caribbean music.

Also in the program were highlights of the music from the Haile Selassie-era Ethiopian National Theater which the E/O revived during its May 2011 tour of Ethiopia.

Brass: Tom Halter / Dan Rosenthal / Joel Yennior
