Jazz Mafia Symphony - Brass Bows And Beats - (Jazz/Classical/R&B/Hip-Hop)
"Brass, Bows, and Beats: A Hip-Hop Symphony is one of the most exciting new works of American music in years--a seamless fusion of jazz, funk, hip-hop, electronica, and digital turntable that deserves to be heard worldwide (now!), from the Main Stage in Monterey to the Auditorium Stravinsky in Montreux."
Rick Marianetti, Examiner.com
"On par with Miles Davis & Gil Evans' "Live at Carnegie Hall' or Charles Mingus' Epitaph - visionary in scope, staggering in depth." - Gabe Meline, Sonoma County Bohemian
With Brass, Bows & Beats, Adam Theis has made a major contribution to the constantly evolving American and global art form known as jazz. But this phenomenal work is about much more than one simple classification can begin to describe. Approached with innovation and improvisation, this multi-thematic, genre-defying and community-oriented work both embraces and expands on jazz tradition, while sending a positive and pertinent message for our times. The result is a piece that continues to impress an historical impact that simply cannot be denied. -- Learn More --
